We talked about the discipline or practice or prayer of examen on Sunday. Here is the basic outline. Use it as a way of being present in God’s presence.

  • Recall
    God I believe I am in your presence and that you love me
  • Gratitude
    God as I look at the gifts of the day, I give you thanks, because you are the source and the giver of these gifts
  • Grace
    Spirit of God, help me to understand the mystery of my heart. Help me to see my limits and to respond to your many gifts.
  • Review
    God help me to see the faces of the people I have met, the places I have been and the things I have thought, spoken and done.
  • Prayer
    God for where I have seen you present I give thanks. Where I have resisted seeing you, I ask for forgiveness. Enable me by your grace to seek you and see you at all times.
