A good nightly examen…
B – Blessings. How have I been surrounded by God’s grace today? Name some things in your heart. Thank the Lord!
A – Ask. Ask God to surround with his blessings this or that person, situation, problem. Pray for them with your heart.
K – Kill. How have my sins today hurt the body of Christ? Every ungodly thought, word, action, and omission hurts the body of Christ. Ask for mercy. Make note for your next confession.
E – Embrace. All God to wrap you anew with grace, surround you by his mercy, swaddle you with his love. Fly under the mantle of Mary. Let agitations flee. Enjoy the peace!
R – Resolve. What have I learned from my today that might make a better tomorrow?
