Prayer Guide

PRAYER GUIDE

WE MUST PREPARE THE BODY, MIND, SOUL & SPIRIT

as we obey the First Coomandment: ``Love the Lord you God with all you hear, soul and strength.`` (Lk.10:27)

WE NEED

SACRED TIME

Time is a gift. Give God time. Quality time.

Some 15 minutes or more

SACRED PLACE
Choose a quiet place where you can be alone

with God, In silence.

SACRED POSTURE

The body is the Temple of God.

Find a comfortable chair,

Sit straight.

Head erect

Feet grounded.

Hands in prayer position, resting on lap,

Open and ready to receive.

Relax.

Recollect the senses.

SACRED BREATHING

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.

SACRED CONCENTRATION
Centre on One Revealed Truth

e.g. The indwelling Trinity,

or any mystery of Christ.

Focus deeper and deeper on that truth.

SACRED PICTURE
To quieten the imagination,

Choose an inner picture that will help you

eg. An inner room filled with the light of God.

SACRED WORD
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.
