Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm. Breathe in deeply, hold it, exhale completely. Repeat three times. Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using Psalm 46:10, say slowly:
Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it and exhale completely.
You are trying your best just to be with God.
By our little acts of charity practiced in the shadows we convert souls far away, we help missionaries, we win for them abundant alms; and by that means build actual dwellings spiritual and material for our Eucharistic Lord.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Love of God expressed in small acts of charity, has ripple effects even at a distance. Pray to live in loving ways as you engage in ordinary activities today.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
