Introduction to Jesuit Education
The Jesuit Daily Examen
The Daily Examen is a prayer of reflection and commitment through which St. Ignatius Loyola endeavored to recognize God in his daily life.
Christians in the Jesuit tradition continue this daily practice to develop a growing awareness of God's grace and to access the Power of the Holy Spirit to change their lives.
My Examen Prayer
God, I believe that at this quiet moment I am in Your presence and You are now loving me. Come Holy Spirit.
God, I acknowledge Your love for me in the various gifts for which I am very grateful. Thanks be to God.
God, help me now to review the events of this day in order to recognize you in all parts of my life. Lord, I want to see.
God, please forgive the times I have fallen short, and strengthen my attempts to follow You. Lord have mercy.
God, enlighten me so that my future choices praise, reverence, and serve You above all else. Show me Your way.
