To be filled with the Spirit, we first must be emptied, a frightening thought. Only one thing satisfies the longing of the soul, the one thing Jesus said was needed, God.
Stand with your arms upraised. Let the Spirit of Christ fill you, entering every cell of your body. With each breath ask God to fill you. With each exhalation let go of the ego desires that take up space in you. Stay in the silence for a few minutes.
Pray with me:
Oh Tender One,
Empty us, Dear God. We want to sit at Your feet like Mary, as Your Son hung on the cross. With lives full of distractions it is difficult to find room for You. Help us satisfy the longing of our souls as we sit in prayer with You.
