Practising the Path – Prayer of Examen

February 28, 2016
Passage: Psalm 24; John 20:10-16

"The prayer of examen produces within us the priceless grace of self-knowledge. I wish I could adequately explain to you how great a grace this truly is."~ Richard Foster

"Along this path of prayer, self-knowledge and the thought of one’s sins is the bread with which all palates must be fed no matter how delicate they may be; they cannot be sustained without this bread." ~ St. Teresa of Avila

Take a few moments at the end of each day this week.  Invite the Holy Spirit to point out where God has been at work, and those places where God was needed.  Let the Spirit whisper not only about the world around, but also about your own heart.

You're also invited to practise the path of prayer with friends on Tuesday at noon or 6:30pm.
