Prayer – ‘When you pray…’

Week 6: Sunday 13th October

Theme: ‘When you Pray…’

Scripture: Matthew 6:5-15

Practice: Prayer of Examen

The Examen is a simple, four step way of reflecting and praying through the day. This prayer tool outlines how to start praying the Examen.
“The Examen is an immediate solution to the problem of ‘what do I pray about?’ The answer is: everything that’s happened to you today. You might have the impression that your everyday life is the dreary same old, same old. It isn’t. Daily life is rich and meaningful. Every encounter, every challenge, every disappointment, and every delight is a place where God can be found.” Jim Manney
