Remembering to Continually Pray



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.


Vanquish Spirit-Amnesia,

That causes us to neglect to live

Spirit-led lives.


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,

Watchful readiness;

Continually remembering,

In steadfast prayer.


Wake us from our slumber,

To arise from the dead,

That Christ will shine through us (Eph 5:14).
