March 22, 2020, Micah 3:1-3, 9-12; 6:6-8 – Post 3 – ISSL Reflection

VI.
I closed the last post with a suggestion to “ … walk back through the day and see where justice, kindness and humility were present or even missing when they didn’t need to be.”

This might be a way of incorporating this Scripture with a prayer practice called The Examen or Review of the Day.

I have posted a number of times on my blog about the Examen –
http://discipleswalk.org/?s=examen&x=0&y=0

At its core it follows the pattern –

  • Quiet yourself
  • Make yourself present to God
  • Look back over the past day and notice where you sense God’s presence, comfort and/or leading
  • Look back over the past day and notice where you sense you were drawn away from God
  • Ask God to be your companion into the next day

As we get into the habit of this prayer, do you think we might be better able to notice God in each day’s journey?
