Saturday Examen

I settle myself into prayer today by acknowledging God’s presence around me…I pause and remember that the God of love is gazing upon me now…  


What are the three best things that happened to me, or to those around me, this week? Take a moment to thank God for them.  


What do I most regret, or would I like to have done differently, this week? What have I learnt from that?  


Where have I been most aware of God’s presence this week, in prayer or elsewhere? For a minute or two try to re-live something of that encounter.  


Speak to God the Father, or to Jesus, about what he has brought to your attention in this time of prayer.  


End by looking at the week ahead. Where do you expect to be, and what do you expect to be doing? Ask God for the gifts that you need for the coming days.


Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
