Prayer of Examen
1. Open your heart. Recall that you are in the presence of God. Give thanks for one thing, one gift you have been given this day.
2. Ask the Spirit to come into your heart and help you freely and honestly review the happenings of the day. Search for the movements of your heart which may have been divided between helping and disregarding, listening and ignoring, criticising and forgiving, speaking and silence.
3. Look ahead to tomorrow. Have a heart-to-heart with Jesus. Ask for direction, for support. What do you want to do tomorrow, with God’s help? See the next day's tasks with expectation that God will be good, that you will notice His work in the situation, and that His will would be done.
