The Examen of Consciousness ~ A Prayer to God

God, thank you.
I thank you, God, for always being with me, but
especially, I am grateful that you are with me
right now.

God, send your Holy Spirit upon me.
God, let the Holy Spirit enlighten my mind and
warm my heart that I may know where and
how we have been together this day.

God, let me look at my day.
God, where have a felt your presence, seen your face,
heard your word this day?
God , where have I ignored you, run from you,
perhaps even rejected you this day?

God, let me be grateful and ask forgiveness.
God, I thank you for the times this day we have been
together and worked together.
God, I am sorry for the ways I have offended you
by what I have done or what I did not do.

God, stay close.
God, I ask that you draw me ever closer to you this
day and tomorrow.
God, you are the God of my life – thank you.

El Examen de Conciencia ~ Una oración a Dios

Dios, gracias.
Te doy gracias, Dios, por estar siempre conmigo,
pero sobre todo estoy agradecido que estás conmigo
en este momento.

Dios, envía tu Espíritu Santo sobre mí.
Dios, deja que el Espíritu Santo ilumine mi mente
y mi corazón abrigue para que yo pueda saber dónde
y cómo hemos estado juntos el día de hoy.

Dios, permíteme examinar mi día.
Dios, ¿dónde he sentido tu presencia, visto tu rostro,
oído tu palabra el día de hoy?
Dios, ¿cuándo te he ignorado, huido de Ti,
tal vez hasta rechazado en el día de hoy?

Dios, quiero ser agradecido y pedir perdón.
Dios, te doy las gracias por los tiempos del día de hoy
que hemos estado y trabajado juntos.
Dios, perdóname por las maneras en que te he ofendido
por lo que he hecho o lo que no hice.

Dios, quédate cerca
Dios, te pido que me acerques más a ti
tanto hoy como mañana.
Dios, tú eres el Dios de mi vida. Gracias.
