The Daily Examen is a technique of prayerful reflection on the events of the day in order to detect God’s presence and discern God’s direction for us. It is based on a technique described by Ignatius Loyola in his Spiritual Exercises.
In this form of prayer we seek to reflect - thoughtfully seeking the understanding of the ways of God. A lot of our intellectual faculty is used in this prayer, which progresses from one proposition to another until we arrive at a logical conclusion or an ethical demand. We use this prayer with the final end of a change of heart and action in our lives...
Franciscan prayer incorporates distinctive elements and themes. This form of prayer is a free-flowing, spontaneous, informal praising and loving dialogue with God. It uses the five senses to appreciate all that we see, hear, smell and taste in our lives at work, study and rest.
The Prayer of Request or Prayer of Intercession is asking God in our own words for what we need or desire for ourselves or others. It is interceding with God for our family, our friends, and the world.
Pausing to be grateful for the gifts that you have received in your life, in your week, in your day. Giving thanks to God the Creator.
