With your Apprenticeship Prayer Partners, go over the Prayer of Examen below daily. Is there anything in the Prayer or Examen that God is putting on your heart? Prayer of Examen With my words… Did I exaggerate? Did I use critical tones? Did I try to mislead anyone with what I said? Did I use innuendo? Did I use coarse language today? Did I speak life to anyone? Did I encourage anyone? Did I speak something that is helepful to anyone? Did I help strengthen anyone’s identity in who God created them to be?

Hebrews 11:1 says, “Faith is assurance of things hoped for”.  Many times, the things we hope for take longer to become a reality than we anticipated. During those long seasons where we may not see the results how do we avoid falling into discouragement? Has there been some place in your life that God has invited you to step out in faith, even though like Noah it seemed far beyond what was expected? How did you respond? Would you respond differently today?

Invite the Spirit to bring to your mind a relationship that is currently strained or difficult or stressful or complicated. Ask Jesus: “Have I really sought to understand where they’re coming from, or am I only filtering things through my perspective?” “Have I allowed any offenses to go unchecked? Where do I need to forgive?” “What does love require of me?”

1. Is there brokenness in any of your relationships? How may Jesus be asking you to engage this with a heart for restoration? 2.

Would you consider sharing this with a trusted friend? 3. Jesus prays that we would be made holy as He is holy. As you consider the ways you think, feel and behave towards others, or in private, where are there opportunities for you to grow to become more like Jesus?
