Midweek Meditation: A Prayer Technique (Mark Nepo)

Here is a helpful meditative technique to assist in our prayer as taught by Mark Nepo, a spiritual writer. The seventh step is my addition.

  1. Sit quietly and begin praying, whatever that means to you.
  2. As soon as you find yourself asking for something, stop.
  3. Inhale deeply and begin again.
  4. Begin as many times as necessary until you sink below your problem, your fear, your want to be rescued, and simply pray by listening.
  5. Resist the urge to ask for something. Just listen to your way closer to life.
  6. Ask earnestly for nothing until you feel safe in the miracle you carry by being alive.
  7. Ask for the Holy Spirit to fill you with holy love for Jesus.
