Saturday 7 May 2022

Welcome to the Saturday Examen.

Prepare yourself for prayer today by focusing on your breath…take a few deep breaths in…and then a few releasing breaths out. Notice how the change in breath brings stillness and an awareness of God’s presence.

Cast your mind back over the week…

We were reminded this week that God invites all to be taught by God. Take this moment to listen and respond now…

Is there a particular moment in the week that God is drawing you to remember? Notice what rises to the surface naturally… allow the moment to reveal itself …

Do you notice any tensions, lack of understanding or frustration? Allow these moments to be witnessed…

Where in the scriptures, this week, have you found an opening of the heart or sense of revelation or relationship? Again, notice what arises naturally…

Are you aware of anything that stays with you specially? Did anything bring you a particular challenge or question?

Do you sense a missed opportunity in this week’s prayer? Maybe you wanted to spend more time on something? You have time to do that now…

Looking forward, what would you like to ask God for, to find movement in your prayer life and practice?

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.
