The purpose of this podcast is to help you find more peace in your life and connect with the true source of peace, Jesus Christ. 

Outline: Relaxation, Reading, Meditation, Prayer, Contemplation and Visualization.

Get into a place where you can sit comfortably and uninterrupted for about 20 minutes.You should hopefully not be driving or anything tensing or unrelaxing.  If you feel comfortable to do so, I invite you to close your eyes.
Guided Relaxation / Guided Meditation:
Breathe and direct your thoughts to connecting with God. Let your stomach be a balloon inflate, deflate.

Scripture for Meditation

I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart; before the “gods” I will sing you praise. 2 I will now down toward your holy temple and will praise your name for you have so exalted your solemn decree that it surpasses your fame. 3 When I called, you answered me; you greatly emboldened me. 

1 Oh David. 
I give thanks Oh Lord with my whole heart;
Before the gods I sing your praise;
2 I bow down toward your holy temple and give things to your 
Name for your steadfast love and faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word above everything. 
3 On the day I called, you answered me; you increased my strenth of soul. 


God heads your prayer. He is mindful of you. With that said his answers don’t always come in our timing. Many prayers of David he seeks Gods answers and seems like he doesn’t get them. Yet David still recognized Gods love is unfailing. 

He felt the sustaining Strenth of God to his soul. He was willing to declare and sing Gods praises before heavens and earth. Similarly we should seek the kind of clarity of relationship that is described here. 

We should recognize Gods preeminent position at all times. Praise be to God and May our hearts be open to praising him at all times. 

Meditation of Prayer:

Pray as directed by the Spirit.

Dedicate these moments to the patient waiting, when you feel ready ask God for understanding you desire from Him.

Meditation of God and His Glory / Hesychasm:

I invite you to sit in silence feeling patient for your own faults and trials.
