“I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.”
- Rev. Dr. Martin Luther
The Examen Prayer is a great way to look for God’s presence in your life. More than 400 years ago, St. Ignatius of Loyola encouraged prayer-filled mindfulness by proposing what has been called the Daily Examen. The Examen is a technique of prayerful reflection on the events of the day in order to detect God’s presence and to discern his direction for us. In the Examen, you: (1) Become aware of God’s presence, (2) Review the day with gratitude, (3) Reflect on your emotions, (4) Ask for God's forgiveness, and (5) Look toward tomorrow.
Lectio Divina (Latin for "Divine Reading")
Lectio Divina is a traditional monastic practice of scriptural reading, meditation and prayer intended to promote communion with God and to increase the knowledge of God’s Word. It does not treat scripture as texts to be studied, but as the living word. Traditionally, Lectio Divina has four separate steps: read; meditate; pray; contemplate. First a passage of scripture is read, then its meaning is reflected upon. This is followed by prayer and contemplation on the Word of God.
