The Examen Log: A Prayer Resource

November 20, 2017 — Leave a comment

I made this prayer resource for my eighth grade religion students, but I think it can be helpful to all, young or old. It is based on the Jesuit prayer known as the “examen.”

THE EXAMEN LOG

At the end of the day, I replay the day in my head like a movie. I pay attention to and write down the key moments according to the questions below:

1) What was the best moment of my day? ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

2) What was the worst moment of my day? …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

3) What were three main emotions that I felt today?

1………………………………………………

2………………………………………………

3………………………………………………

4) Who was a person who helped me today? How? ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

5) Who was a person I helped today? How? …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

6) What are three things for which I am grateful today?

7) As to my best friend, I speak to God about what I’ve written down. I share my ups and downs. I thank him for the good things. I ask him for strength to help me with my difficulties.
