Preparation for your day ( St. Theophan the Recluse )

So, morning or evening, immediately before you begin to repeat your prayers, stand a while,
sit for a while, or walk a little and try to steady your mind and turn away from all worldly
activities and objects.

After this, think who He is to whom you turn in prayer, then recollect who you are; who it is, 
who is about to start this invocation to Him in prayer. Do this in such a way as to waken in
 your heart a feeling of humility and reverent awe that you are standing in the presence of

St. Theophan the Recluse
