One of the simplest ways to pray—just choose a two-part phrase that is helpful to you, from the Bible, a hymn, chant, poem, or song.
Silently pray the first part of the phrase as you breathe in and silently pray the second part of the phrase as you breathe out.
Repeat, repeat, and repeat.
You can do this almost any time, except when you’re driving.
“The Lord is my shepherd/
I shall not want.”
“Breathing in I calm my body.
Breathing out, I smile.”
