A sharp mind is one honed through prayer. 3787
Privilege is not always earned.
When we're young, we tend to take good memory for granted. But one of the effects of growing older is the ever increasing inability to remember things, like a person's name. Now, I'm not qualified to suggest why that's so, but I can report what I've found to be true in my own life.
When I care about someone, I will not only know their name, but speak it. I've found the only way to do that, is to use it and use it often. And what better way than repeat it when I see them and when God brings them to mind for me to pray for them?
God, forgive me for forgetting so many who You sent my way to be remembered.
