WE MUST PREPARE THE BODY, MIND, SOUL & SPIRIT
Time is a gift. Give God time. Quality time.
Some 15 minutes or more
Choose a quiet place where you can be alone
with God, In silence.
The body is the Temple of God.
Find a comfortable chair,
Hands in prayer position, resting on lap,
Open and ready to receive.
Recollect the senses.
Slow down your breathing.
Breathe in the spirit of Jesus.
Breathe out any tension in body or any emotional tension caused by fear, worry, anger, guilt, or desire.
Centre on One Revealed Truth
e.g. The indwelling Trinity,
or any mystery of Christ.
Focus deeper and deeper on that truth.
To quieten the imagination,
Choose an inner picture that will help you
eg. An inner room filled with the light of God.
Choose a prayer word to fight distraction
e.g. The Jesus prayer or “Jesus … peace”, or simply “Jesus”.
Choose whatever helps you.
Keep repeating the sacred word with your breathing and the beat of your heart.
The Holy Spirit may lure you Into deep silence. Deeper Than words.
BE STILL AND SURRENDER
Listen to the word in Faith. Trust Abba Father in Hope.
Let the Holy Spirit, the Living Flame of Love, Inflame you with Charity.
* Stop * Look * Listen * Enjoy God.
