In this episode John leads you through a simple breath prayer using Brennen Manning's Abba, I belong to you breath prayer.

A fitting prayer at this time.

Brennan Manning years ago: “Abba, I belong to you.”  This breath prayer is known to have brought healing to many in suffering by restoring their true identity as the beloved child. Let us remember that it is God who breathed His spirit on us  (John 20:22) and enabled us to call Him Abba (Romans 8:15-16).   

In Ephesians 3:2-13, Paul describes how God initiated our belonging to Him, included outsiders in His family, and invited you and me to carry the message of inclusion (belonging to God) to the world.  

Let us begin the journey of bringing the message of God’s inclusion by appreciating our Father for establishing a way HOME, where we find rest and strength in times of uncertainty and insecurity.

To learn more about Brennan’s teaching on “The Abba Experience”, check out his book “Abba’s Child: The Cry of the Heart for Intimate Belonging”.  

Use today’s breath prayer to ground yourself into a deeper reality. First, remember that you as an individual belong to God as His beloved child. Second, think about how all humanity belongs to God as His beloved children. 

Thus we encourage you to engage yourself in this breath prayer twice as follows:

1st round:

  • Pause and set your intention to become fully present to God who is with you in this moment.
  • Engage in Breath Prayer 
    • Breath IN and say, “Abba”
    • Breathe OUT and say, “I belong to you!”  
  • Repeat by taking three intentional slow, deep breaths to ground into this deeper reality. 
  • Notice the effect this prayer has on you. 
  • Original version 
    • Breathe IN: Abba 
    • Breathe OUT: I Belong To You 
  • Short version
    • Breathe IN:  Abba
    • Breathe OUT:  Belong  

2nd round:

  • Pause and set your intention to become fully present to God who is with us in this moment.
  • Engage in Breath Prayer 
    • Breath IN and say, “Abba”
    • Breathe OUT and say, “We belong to you!”  
  • Repeat by taking three intentional slow, deep breaths to ground into this deeper reality. 
  • Notice the effect this prayer has on you. 


  • Original version

    • Breathe OUT: We Belong To You
