Our prayer, Holy Father, is this:
When the advent of Easter is no longer before us,
And these holy days fade away,
May we not forget to remember You daily.
Cure us of our amnesia, Lord:
Chosen-Amnesia, because we choose not to remember;
Enemy-Amnesia, inflicted because the enemy doesn't want us to remember;
Sin-Amnesia, a product of the sin that distracts us from remembering.
Cure us of Thankfulness-Amnesia,
The forgetting to give thanks
For what You've done,
What You're doing,
And what is yet to come.
That causes us to neglect to live
Put an end to all Spiritual-Amnesia,
That forgets the price of our Redemption,
Instigates a loss of hope,
And robs action from faith.
Kindle these minds to a state of high alert,
In steadfast prayer.
Wake us from our slumber,
To arise from the dead,
That Christ will shine through us (Eph 5:14).
