O God, we come before You in the presence of the Holy Spirit, placing deep and heartfelt desires at Your feet. Lord, help us be in accordance with Your will and plans.
Lord Jesus Christ, counselor of all who come for Your aid and seek Your guidance. May hearts be not hardened to receive Your word. May eyes not be blinded to see the truth and obedience to Your will. Amen.
-Shane Warta, Coordinator of Lay Leadership
Prayerfully read Philippians 4:6-7 & Proverbs 11:14
You may pray by simply checking in with God at the end of the day. As you might call a friend or family member just to chat about what is going on in your life, you can have the same conversation with God.
Ignatius of Loyola, a 16th century cleric and theologian, taught what he called the Daily Examen. The Examen asks the believer to share with God that for which you are thankful, moments you recognized God’s presence in the events of the day, your shortcomings, and to ask God to prepare you for the day ahead.
