Prayer of Examen

“O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me.” Psalm 139:1 

 

The Prayer of Examen is a technique of prayerful reflection on the events of your day in order to remember God’s presence an discern His direction.  The Examine is an ancient practice in the Church that can help us see God’s hand at work in our daily journey of faith.

 

It is a 5 step process:

  1. Recall you are in the presence of God
  2. Look at your day with gratitude
  3. Ask for help from the Holy Spirit
  4. Review your day
  5. Reconcile and resolve

We have created an audio file of the Examine.  The Examine is narrated by a longtime member of our church and a man who has been walking with Jesus for quite some time.   Feel free to download the file below and use it as a means of leading you into a time of prayer and reflection.  There are also cards you can download and print out so you can follow along visually if you would like. Remember you can pause the Examine at any time to spend extra time at each step.  May you be blessed as you Examine your day.
