Remind Me, Lord – A Prayer by Olga Carmen de Juana

Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting,
that You are powerful enough to single-handed
handle all of my problems, no matter,
how large, how small, how complex or how simple.

Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting,
that You are stronger in every way
than my strongest enemies.

Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting,
that You are mightier than any bad wishes against me.
Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting,
that You are my protector.
Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting,
that I don’t have to fear anyone.
Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting,
that You are capable of helping me with anything:
I feel overwhelmed by, I feel helpless about,
I feel anxious about, or I feel defeated by.
Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting,
that You are my helper.
Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting,
that I don’t have to fear anything.

Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting,
that Your love is greater
than any love I’ve ever known.
Greater than my mother’s love.
Greater than my Father’s love.
Greater than my sister’s love.
Greater than my brother’s love.
Greater than my best friend’s love.
Greater than my spouse’s love.
Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting,
that You loved me before
I was a twinkle in my parent’s eyes.

Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting,
that no matter what I have done,
You still love me.
You may not be pleased with my actions or choices,
but none-the-less, You still love me.
Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting,
that I don’t have to be deserving
of Your love but, You love me anyway.
Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting,
that I don’t have to earn Your love.
Remind me, Lord, I keep forgetting,
that Your love has always been
and will always be with me,
whether I recognized it or not.
Remind me, Lord, I keep forgetting,
that Your love is unconditional.
Remind me, Lord, I keep forgetting, that I can rely on Your love.
