OVERVIEW | THE STEPS OF NEXUS PRAYER
Whether you pray the Nexus Prayer over the span of five minutes or one hour, the method is the same. The tabbed “Steps” under “The Prayer” drop-down menu at the top of this page give more detailed instruction, but all you need to do to get started is to set aside the time to just “be” with God. (We were, after all, originally designed to be human be-ings.) So, find a quiet spot, close your eyes, and gently repeat the prayer of Psalm 46:10 in reverse order:
Then, simply listen to God.
When we are still, we are letting go of all of our burdens, problems, worries, fears, anxiety, stress, memories, etc… We are letting go – uploading, as it were – all of our concerns to God.
God speaks in the silence of the heart. Listening is the beginning of prayer.” ~ Saint Teresa of Calcutta
And as we practice just be-ing with God, we are allowing God the quality, one-on-one time to download into our mind, heart, spirit, and soul all that HE believes we need.
To use a well-known, popular phrase, we are to: “Let go, and let God.”
