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.
I am so feeble, so weak, that I wish to be united forever to Divine Strength Itself.
St. Therese of Lisieux
As we become more in touch with our powerlessness – our feebleness, we are more able to acknowledge our need for “Divine Strength itself.” As you pray today, ask for God’s strength to make up for your weakness or anything you lack in serving God and others.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
