Capsule for the Day
God, Our Father, we bring to You our memories. We thank you for the good memories; the events and experiences of happiness, of success, of blessings, of joy, of new birth, of healing, of good news and many more. These memories are real. They reveal the in-breaking of Your Kingdom.
We also thank You for our bad memories; the experiences that hurt and depress us. Although they are bad, they reveal to us the effects of the Kingdom of darkness. Let Your Kingdom come, O Lord. Let Your will be done on earth. Let our bad memories be transformed as we encounter You.
As we gather at Your table to listen to You and to "re-member", help us to draw from You, the Good Memory. For most of the time, our lives drown in a sea of bad memories and we forget You. We need You, Lord. What is life without You. For You are the Good Memory that makes life worth living.
