To my motivating and encouraging God, I’m not really concerned at remembering any good that I may have done through your grace. Please bring to my remembrance at appropriate times lessons learned in my life so I may succeed in effectively bringing glory to you and furthering your kingdom. As you bring these memories to my mind, allow me also to remember and cherish your working through others to display forgiveness, grace and compassion to me as matters were resolved. In deep gratitude to you and all others, please shed your fruit of patience as I delightedly help others resolve their issues and recall the opening verses of 2 Corinthians where we are to comfort others as you have comforted us. Amen.
