Today’s Prayer:

Pray through the examen prayer and spend time resting in it.

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?
