    • Supplication
  • Prayer helps
  • Gospel Prayer from Gospel
    • In you, there is nothing I could do to make you love me more; nothing I have done that makes you love me less.
    • You are all I need today for everlasting joy.
    • As you have been to me, so I will be to others.
    • As I pray, I’ll measure your compassion by the cross and your power by the resurrection.
  • Start where you are!
    • Don’t get overwhelmed.
    • If you aren’t doing anything at all, start with 5 or 10 minutes. Don’t let what others are doing intimidate you from just starting.
  • It’s more important that you find a rhythm that works for you than to do it “the right way.” To paraphrase a friend of mine, “I like my way of meeting with God better than your way of not meeting with him.”
