Take a moment to acknowledge God’s specific and loving attention to you in the here and now.
Feel the warmth of God’s love as God looks upon you, God’s purposeful creation.
God loved you into existence. God continues to breathe life into you now and sustains you in being. God is inviting you at this moment into an ever-deeper relationship of love.
Just bask in that experience for a few minutes – just as you bathe in the warmth of the sun on a warm summer’s day, so now bathe in the warmth of God’s love for you.
And as you bask in the warmth of God’s love for you, listen to what God might be communicating to you.
As you listen, you may feel drawn to make a response. To say a few words to God in the silence of your heart.
In responding to God, you may want to ask God for something, or you may want to pray for someone.
Maybe you want to thank God for your experience of God’s unique loving attention to you, perhaps in words like these:
“Dear God, I acknowledge that you are looking at me in love and attending to me always and most especially in this moment. I thank you for this time we have had together. I ask you now for the grace to be able to look upon you and attend to you this day. May I also receive the grace to see myself as you see me and to see others in this world as you see them. Amen.”
