Palms Down, Palms Up

Sit in a straight backed chair and imagine Christ before you.

Place your palms down and give all of your thoughts, your worries, your hopes, your whole self to Christ.

Place your palms up and receive from Christ love, hope, peace, patience, humility, and Christ’s very person.
