One, two, three — 3 spiritual exercises how to converse with God?

Spread the love

Spiritual exercises?  How to converse with God?    How can you expand your daily  consciousness of God,  who is in all and all present.

Catholic priest  Father Larry   learned after the death of his wife Joan nineteen years ago how much he needed God as his Friend, the same way  as Abraham was God’s friend.

“But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, you descendants of Abraham my friend. ( Isaiah 41:8).

Says Father Larry:  There’s one, two three spiritual exercises you can do daily,  which take about 5 or so  minutes a day.   These spiritual exercises are a way of expanding your consciousness of God who is in all and all present.

At the  ‘Last Chance Cafe’ 7/28/2019   (6 pm Sunday  Mass at Resurrection Catholic Community in Aptos, CA)   Father Larry  said:

1) Think back over the last 24 hours for an interaction or event  that went well in your life. Re-experience those moments and hold them in your consciousness.  Then,  give thanks to God for those moments and event.

2) Next.  Now think back over the last 24 hours for an interaction, project  or event that did not go well. This time think how  it might have gone better and replay in your  consciousness how it might have gone.  And now, ask God  for grace that next time that it will go better.

3) Think ahead to the next 24 hours.  Think about what might happen in the next 24 hours,  about up-coming   projects, events or interactions which you think will occur.   Pick a particular  possible event.  And ask God for strength and wisdom as you experience that up-coming event or interaction.

That’s the One, Two , Three spiritual exercises you can utilize to expand your consciousness of God as your Friend and Companion on the Way.  Thank  Father Larry  of Resurrection Catholic Community, for these suggestions.
