I rediscovered this “examine” received while attending a Five Day Academy for Spiritual Formation in March of 2008.  I thought I would post it here.  I found it to be very thought provoking.  (I am unsure of the source)

Examination…The Lord’s Prayer throughout the Day…

Our Father in heaven

  • When did you sense the greatest intimacy with God?

Hallowed be your name

  • When were you most aware of how unique and different God is?

Your Kingdom come

  • When and how did you see the kingdom making itself real?

Your will be done on earth

  • When were you most alive?

Give us this day our daily bread

  • When were you given bread?
  • When did you share bread?

Forgive us our sins

  • When were you most aware of sin and the desire to end your relationship with it?
  • When were you a part of the problem, rather than light toward a solution?

As we forgive those who sin against us

  • When were you forgiving or an agent of forgiveness?

Lead us not into temptation

  • When did you feel God’s guiding and defining action?

Deliver us from evil

  • When did you feel God protecting you from evil in yourself and without?

For the kingdom, power, and glory are yours

  • When did you sense or confess it is about God?

Forever

  • When were you most aware of eternal realities or the Eternal?

Amen…
