Spiritual Practice The Prayer of Examen
This prayer is a way of becoming aware of God‘s presence in our daily life. In reviewing the events, thoughts, actions, feelings, and dreams of the past twenty-four hours, God invites us to notice occasions and patterns of mercy, even in times of transition and heartache. The God who created you also lovingly desires to be close to you through your grief as well as during your times of joy. The Prayer of Examen is attributed to the founder of the Jesuits, Ignatius of Loyola.
