In this episode Omar Calderon and a group of Faithwalkers share a time of meditation and learning about practices that nurture the soul. This week they focused on the third principle of listening prayer, listening prayer as a spiritual cleansing from God. This conversation was originally recorded in June of 2020.
A video of the meditation, slides of the presentation, and a podcast with the teaching portion of the meeting are available below. To learn more about the Weekly Meditation Meetings, click here.

Use your prayer journal to record your two-way conversations with God as you listen to what He has to tell you through Psalm 139:23-24.
Prayer of Divine Introspection – pray it for yourself.
Below are various translations of the same, so you can meditate on them during your prayer:
Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts and concerns! And see if there be any wicked or offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!
Search me thoroughly, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts; and see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way.
Examine me, God! Look at my heart! Put me to the test! Know my anxious thoughts! Look to see if there is any idolatrous way in me, then lead me on the eternal path!
Look deep into my heart, God, and find out everything I am thinking. Don’t let me follow evil ways, but lead me in the way that time has proven true.
God, examine me and know my mind. Test me and know all my worries. Make sure that I am not going the wrong way. Lead me on the path that has always been right.
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. And see if there is in me the worship of false gods, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test my thoughts. Point out anything you find in me that makes you sad, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.
Investigate my life, O God, find out everything about me; cross-examine and test me, get a clear picture of what I’m about; see for yourself whether I have done anything wrong — then guide me on the road to eternal life.
Examine me, and probe my thoughts! Test me, and know my concerns! See if there is any idolatrous tendency in me, and lead me in the reliable ancient path!
God, see what is in my heart. Know what is there. Test me. Know what I’m thinking. See if there’s anything in my life you don’t like. Point out anything in me that offends you. Help me live in the way that is always right.
God, I invite your searching gaze into my heart. Examine me through and through; find out everything that may be hidden within me. Put me to the test and sift through all my anxious cares. See if there is any path of pain I’m walking on, and lead me back to your glorious, everlasting ways — the path that brings me back to you.
Explore me, O God, and know the real me. Dig deeply and discover who I am. Put me to the test and watch how I handle the strain. Examine me to see if there is an evil bone in me, and guide me down Your path forever.
