What’s the one most important prayer we should pray every day? St. Ignatius said you should never omit the Examen Prayer, also known as the Examination of Conscience, from your daily prayer. This app will remind you to pray the Examen Prayer daily and walk you gently through the steps with the trusted guidance of Fr. Michael Denk. In the Spiritual Life there are 3 voices: 1) Our Voice 2) The voice of the Enemy and 3) The voice of God. The Examen Prayer app helps you to be aware of the different voices, listen to God’s voice and reject the voices that are not of God.

A journal is included to help you keep your daily resolution and grow in your prayer life. Journaling will also help you reflect on and make changes in your life that will bring you closer to God.
Features of this app:
· Daily scripture affirmations
· Reminder to pray the Examen Prayer
· Reminder of the resolution that you made
· Video tutorials
· Step-by-step teaching
· Secure, password-protected journal
· Journaling feature with each step
· Journal review
· Cloud storage syncs journal between devices
· Resolution reminder.
· Adjustable countdown timer so that you can determine how long you want to pray each day
· Links to the Daily Readings, Church Finder, and Catholics Come Home.

Alarm won’t stop going off

I really enjoyed this prayer guide. However, if I didn’t immediately start my prayer after the alarm went off it would keep going off, even after I had cleared the alarm. The videos were excellent guides but the little things were what made this irritating.

People need to quit complaining about the journal

Guys. Why all the super harsh reviews due to some journal bugs? This is an amazing concept, the app is well-designed, and it's overall not buggy. Plus, it's free. If you pay and there are bugs, you have the right to be mad, but you're not paying anything here. It's not often that you can pull your phone out of your pocket and have a priest guide you through prayer. I myself have been in a spiritual dry patch lately, which makes it hard to stay focused in mental prayer. This app is *exactly* what I need right now. I also love the little touches. For example, when you've been on the same screen too long without any activity, a little church bell rings and an alert pops up reminding you that Jesus is still with you, even if you've had to go do something else. A+ attention to detail. Would recommend this app.

Amazing, please fix the journal

So revolutionary to my faith life. Guided examen. But the best part of the app itself, the journal, no longer saves. Been trying to surrender and lift up my entries without being saved, but it would be ideal for the sake of the app, for its best asset (it's journal) to be fully restored. Thank you. Otherwise 5 stars.
