I have been wanting to do this at night. This might be right for me.
An Annunciation Examen
1) The Angel Gabriel visited Mary of Nazareth with a message of Good News.
- The Lord sends messengers to us each day.
- Who has been Gabriel to you today?
- What was their message?
2) The Angel says: “The Lord is with you.”
- When did you experience and sense God’s presence in your life today?
3) The Angel says: “Do not be afraid.”
- Has there been angst or undue worry? What was it?
- Offer it to God. Ask him to replace your fear with peace.
4) The Angel says: “You have found favor with God.”
- Today, did I do or say something unbecoming of God’s favor toward me as His beloved son or daughter?
5) The Angel says: “The Holy Spirit will come.”
- Acknowledge how the Holy Spirit was present to you throughout the day.
- What fruit of the Spirit did I manifest?
- What gift of the Spirit do I most need right now?
- Ask for His guidance tomorrow in all that you do.
6) The Angel says, “Nothing is impossible for God.”
- Today, did I doubt God’s providence? Repent. Celebrate what God has done for you today, the possible and impossible.
7) Mary says, “Behold I am the handmaid of the Lord, may it be done to me according to your will.”
- How have I been a servant today?
- How do I expect God to use me tomorrow?
- What is God’s will for me right now? This week? Next month? Ask Him to reveal His will.
