“Do You Not Remember?”
Forgive us, Lord, for those times when we fail to remember; forgive us for when we fail to remember your mighty acts of the past—not only those about which we read in your Book but also those that we have experienced in our own lives and in the life of our faith community.
Give us good, active, and perceptive memories, and cause our remembering to contribute to our increasing perception of who you are and to our increasing faith in you.
Help us from our memories of you to learn better to trust in you.
“Do you still not perceive? Do you not remember the five loaves for the five thousand, and how many baskets you gathered? Or the seven loaves for the four thousand, and how many baskets you gathered?” (Matthew 16:9-10)
