As the end of term approaches it is a good time to look back and ask:
what I have done for Christ, what I am doing for Christ, what I ought to do for Christ?
Over this week we will pray the different parts of the Examen of Consciousness. This is a prayer the FCJ sisters are asked to pray daily to enable them to look back over their day and see where they have been cooperating with God or not cooperating with God during the day. Over the course of this week, you will be asked to look back over your year, from September until now.
Today, focus on just being aware that you are always in the presence of God:
“Here I am Lord, to have a few minutes quiet time with you. It is good to be here and to think a bit about my day.”
Spend a few moments in silence…
Say to God in the silence of your heart whatever you want to say. Know that he listens and loves us no matter what.
Let us pray: presence of God:
Dearest Lord, teach me to be generous,
teach me to serve you as I should,
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labour and ask not for reward,
save that of knowing that I do your most holy will.
