Reuben Alexander did the message on prayer.
These are the steps for one version of the Daily Prayer of Examen. There are many variations of this prayer available online.
The Prayer of Examen is way of examining yourself and your day with God, allowing Him to search you and speak to you.
- Become aware of God’s presence.
– take some time to breathe deeply and become aware of God’s presence around you and within you.
Review the day with gratitude.
-look back on your day through a lense of thankfulness, you can even be thankful for the challenges you faced as they may have learned from them.
Pay attention to your emotions.
-try to identify the emotions you are feeling. God is not afraid or offended by your emotions!
Choose one feature of the day and pray from it.
– Perhaps something that happened is a burden, take this opportunity to hand it to God. If something was a joy, thank God for it!
Look toward tomorrow.
-look forward with hope and expectation and take some time to wait upon God.
