The next several days we are going to be sitting with the same quote by Henri Nouwen. Prayer is meeting with our Creator. Prayer is opening our hearts for the Spirit to move, breathe, and speak. Prayer may take on many different expressions and yet it’s in the opening of our hearts in order to truly commune with God.
Sit in the quiet, aware of your breath
Quiet your mind, heart and body.
Read the following quote by Henri Nouwen
“One way to pray in
A fear-filled world is
To choose love
To open the door
Of the heart
To dwell in
The intimate presence of
The one who loves us.”
Read it several more times through. If you can, slowly let the door of your heart open. You don’t need to force it … sometimes it just takes a small breeze or a shift in movement.
