Daily Examen Journal

Daily Examen Journal - printable booklet

The daily Examen is way to pray through the events and emotions of the day to find God with us. When practiced regularly, the Examen can help those who pray it identify God in all aspects of the day and see the patterns of God’s presence over time. It is a key way to pray in Ignatian spirituality.

Introduce teens and adults to the Examen with our daily Examen journal—printable and foldable as a booklet. The prayer steps in the journal are as described by Mark E. Thibodeaux, SJ, in Reimagining the Ignatian Examen.

In addition to following the steps day by day as one learns the prayer, keeping a journal of prayer time can be a fruitful practice as one grows deeper in a relationship with God.

Praying the Examen is an easy way to get involved in the worldwide Ignatian Year, commemorating the 500th anniversary of St. Ignatius of Loyola’s conversion. For more on the Ignatian Year, visit our sister site, IgnatianSpirituality.com.
