As we continue to explore the Examen Prayer, we delve into Thanksgiving. As you recall, the first part of the Examen is to call on the Holy Spirit to guide us. Step 2, we examine our day and give thanks to God for all He has done for us.
We will Explore:
1. The Scriptural Roots of Thanksgiving
The Psalms of Thanksgiving
Old Testament Examples of Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving in the Liturgy and Prayers of the Church
2. We will explore how living a life of Thanksgiving affects our Mental and Physical well being.
