Evening Examen--Sins Against the First Commandment


"O Lord, I call upon Thee; hasten to me!
Give ear to my voice when I call to Thee!
May my prayer be counted as incense before Thee;
The lifting up of my hands as the evening offering."

Psalm 141:1,2

Sins against the first commandment:

Did I read and believe my horoscope today? Did I give proper time to God in prayer? Did I love God with all my heart and all my strength and all my mind and all my spirit? Did I say anything that would lead others away from the love of God? Did I despair of or presume on God's infinite mercy? Did I rely upon the false gods of money, reputation, pleasure, or property?

Experiencing God,

Where did I hear God today? How did I react? How can I improve my hearing and reaction time? Where did I do well in listening to Him? How did I so so? Did I rely upon grace and upon the Holy Spirit? How can I bring myself to rely more upon God's strength and less upon my own?
