Begin with simple awareness that you are, that you exist, here and now.
Sense your own being, and rest in it.
As you become fully aware of your being, realize that God is your being.
Breathe in and out slowly and deeply three times and rest in the awareness of his being, your shared being.
In spite of my littleness I can give God my most tender affection.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Whether a person of little importance or great importance, we are asked to give God our “most tender affection.” In your prayer today, meditate on the many ways you have received God’s “tender affection” and reflect on the ways you have or have not given that same affection to God.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
