Week A

Stage 4

Daily Prayer

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Loving Father, I gather in Your presence.

I invite stillness into my heart.

May I breathe in Your peace and breathe out all stress and worry.

Holy Spirit, speak to me through this time in prayer so that the ear of my heart may understand God’s will.

You are invited to pray the Examen which is a prayer that helps us process the last 24 hours as we journey with God. Use either the video above or the instructions below to lead yourself through the Examen.

  1. Find a comfortable space, breathe and say hello to God as His presence is with you

  2. Reflect over your day at school, at home or somewhere else

  3. What made you happy? Did someone say or do something that made you feel good within yourself? Who was it?

  4. Did you do something that made you feel good in return?

  5. Did you do something that you really enjoyed? Thank God for it.

  6. Did anything make you feel sad? Did something happen to you? Did you do something to someone else?

  7. Is there something you want to say sorry for? Whatever it is, remember that God loves you and that does not change!

  8. Now think about tomorrow. Do you want to ask God for support or help with anything?

  9. God listens! Talk to God now about anything. Ask God to remind you that you are never alone!

God I thank you for journeying with me and for walking with me into tomorrow.
