It is not how much you do,
but how much Love you put into the doing that matters.
-Mother Teresa

Tips
When you open your eyes, repeat this line from the Psalms: "This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad." Commit to living in gratitude for the day, and you'll soon notice how much happier your days can become.

Water is a powerful spiritual symbol. As you soap and rinse in the shower, pray to be cleansed of any feelings of anger, bitterness, resentment, or regret. Recall the words of Isaiah (58:11): "The Lord will guide you continuallyÖ You shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters never fail."

This one is especially for those who drive. Before starting the car engine, place your hands lightly on the steering wheel and breathe deeply several times. Ask the Holy Spirit to steer you through your day. Back out of your driveway slowly, and remain aware of God's Angels. Let grace-filled thoughts carry you in a loving manner through the day.

Instead of dividing our concentration among many tasks, do one thing at a time-prayerfully. Offer your work as a prayerful gift to God. Ask for the grace to do it meaningfully, and without anxiety.

Before you reach for the†food, try this. Wait one minute. Offer the minute to God and ask for the grace you need.

"Never let a day go by without touching the earth with your foot." Take a five or ten minute break to walk in a meditative way. Give up your usual energized stride to pay attention to the movement of lifting your leg, bending your knee, and placing your foot. Observe your breathing and your body. Look around. Notice the birds, the trees, and the sounds of nature. Nature tunes us into God's presence.

30 Minutes Prayers

(5)

Clearing (5 minutes)
Use this time to relax and let your soul catch up with your body. Take a series of deep breaths, letting them out slowly. As you do, try to clear away any obstacles you may have brought with you to experiencing God's presence.

(5)

Focusing (5 minutes)
You may wish to read a few verses from Scripture or another writing you consider sacred. Whatever it is, it should be a kind that tells your intuitive self, "I'm now actively preparing to listen to the voices around my table, especially the voice of God." You may also wish to bring a particular question to the table. If you do, be open to the possibility that this may not be the subject God wants to talk about (trusting that whatever God wants to talk about is in your best interests to hear).

(10)

Listening (10 minutes)
Pay attention to thoughts and voices that enter your head. Don't decide too quickly that they're not of God. Instead, try to gently trace the origins, paying careful attention to your feelings about them. Do they make you scared, angry, anxious, calm, joyful? If you are exploring a particular question you've brought to the table, it is often helpful to intentionally ask, "What is my free child saying?" "What is my pessimist saying?" and so forth. There are normally a number of voices who show up regularly at your table. Who are they, and what are they saying?

(5)

Asking (5 minutes)
When most people pray, asking is all they do. They offer God their laundry list and then wonder why God never seems to get around to it. The truth is that God does want you to ask for things in prayer. However, God wants you to ask from your truest self. Chances are good that whatever is in the best interest of your truest self (not your paranoid self or your scared self or your "I just want to get ahead" self) is of more interest to God than it is even to you.

(5)

Thanking (5 minutes)
The mystics have always known that gratitude is one of the most powerful spiritual forces there is. Just like a child who asks and takes without ever thanking her parents rarely benefits from what is given, so an adult who never focuses on giving rarely receives. Start and End your prayer time with gratitude.
