It’s Friday and last day of school! Here are 5 prayers that Jesus-following people have been saying for hundreds of years. They are part of the examen prayer. Spend a few minutes on each one as you look back on the week – maybe even the whole year.

1) God, thank you – for always being with me.
2) God, send your Holy Spirit to me – help me know your presence
3) God, here’s my week – where did I feel your presence? Where did I ignore or run from you?
4) God, I’m sad and sorry – for the ways that I have let you down
5) God, give me grace – to know your forgiveness and presence even more this new week
