  • After a couple deep breaths, pray, "Be still and know that I am."
  • After a couple deep breaths, pray, "Be still and know."
  • After a couple deep breaths, pray, ""Be still."
  • After a couple deep breaths, pray, ""Be."
The pause between each phrase can be lengthened depending on your need.
