Spiritual Practice Activity: Conscious Breathing

For this activity, we will be using the Lord’s Prayer:

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on Earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we also forgive those who trespass against us. And do not bring us into temptation, but rescue us from evil. For the kingdom and the power and the glory are Yours, forever and ever. Amen.

As you read this prayer in a comfortable position, breathe in and out on each word. For example, you’d breathe in on the word “Our,” out on the word “Father,” in again on “in,” and so on. You can go at whatever pace is best for you. Use this strategy for whatever method of prayer you like, to silence the world around you and focus on the words of your prayer.
