A Method of Prayer of

St. Ignatius of Loyola

 

[In 15 minutes Move Through 5 Steps]

 

 

STEP #1:        

 

I am in God’s loving gaze, God creating me one moment at a time.

 

 

STEP #2:        

 

I thank God for graces, favors, gifts received; both my permanent gifts and gifts of this day.

 

 

STEP #3:

 

I ask Holy Spirit to enlighten my mind and heart; that Jesus' Spirit will accompany me, refresh and alert me.

 

 

STEP #4:  

 

I review how I have been living this day, this time, since I last paused to pray with loving attention.  I consider well my feelings, my affections, my moods and my inclinations, as well as my actions and inactions.

 

 

STEP #5:   

 

I prayerfully speak words of reconciliation and resolve. 

 

I end:  Our Father…
