Today’s Prayers:

1. A PRAYER FOR MY LIFE:

Father, I pray that today I would be aware of your presence in everything I do.

2.  A PRAYER FOR MY CHURCH:

Lord, I pray for relational connection for people within my church. I pray against loneliness and feelings of inadequacy and ask that you provide gospel centered community for all people.

3.  A PRAYER FOR THE KINGDOM:

Lord, I pray for the Service men and women around the world who are selflessly defending our country and our freedom. I pray you would protect them from harm and bring them home safely. I ask that you will comfort families in their absence.

Examen Prayer:

  • Become aware of God’s presence and His love for you.
  • Review the week with gratitude.
  • While asking yourself the following questions, be attentive to what you’re feeling or to what you’re thinking:
    • Where in your week did you experience consolation; joy, comfort, peace?
    • Where in your week did you experience desolation; sadness, frustration, or failure?
    • As you become attentive to your desolation; what sadness, frustration or failure might you need to confess? Where might you need to receive forgiveness?
  • With hope, look towards tomorrow. What newness would the Holy Spirit be inviting you into?
