Enhance Your Prayer Life!


The EXAMEN Prayer App

St. Ignatius said that the most important prayer, the one should never be omitted from daily prayer, is the Examen Prayer. (Also Known as “The Examination of Consciousness”)

The ingeniousness of this app is that it will remind you to pray the Examen daily and walk you through the steps. If you take advantage of the journaling it will also help you to reflect on and make changes in your life that will bring you closer to God!
