Listening Prayer

Exhale and inhale until you are relaxed. Now pray:

“My Lord and My God, listening is hard for me. I do not exactly mean hard, for I understand that this is a matter of receiving rather than trying. What I mean is that I am so action oriented, so product driven, that doing is easier than being. I need your help if I am to be still and listen. I would like to try. I would like to learn how to sink down into the light of your presence until I can become comfortable in that posture. Help me to try now.

Thank you. – Amen”

*Now be still and listen for at least 5 to 10 minutes.
