ďPour out your heart to Him, for God is our refuge.Ē (Psalm 62:8, NIV)

As a teacher, I spend time each day reminding my students of things such as the classroom rules, project due dates, the capital of California, and how to be kind to others. The list could fill several books. We practice skills and memorize information in order to recall them later. It takes repetition to transfer information into long-term memory.

I think the same is true of our relationship with God. We often need to be reminded of His presence and His love for us. In the rush of daily life, or in the midst of a crisis, we can forget God is right there with us. I will admit I am guilty of this temporary memory lapse. The following prayer is my way of asking God to remind this forgetful child of His character and promises.

Father, thank you so much for who You are,
and for loving me more
than I could possibly love myself.

When I become angry, sad, or confused,
help me to remember the day
You first said
Youíd always be there for me,
to soothe my anger, wipe my tears, and answer my questions.

Remind me of all the times You helped me, healed me,
and carried me through deep water
and across the dark valleys of life.

Remind me how there is no problem
too big or too small for You,
no thought You donít already know,
no prayer You wonít answer when the time is right.

Remind me how I donít have to be perfect at this moment,
that Your love canít be bought or earned,
and when I stumble and fall, You will pick me up.

Remind me how always and never
are the absolutes which define Your character,
and I can always know
Your love for me will never end.
