From the January 2009 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I'M LOSING MY MIND, I thought. About five years ago, it became difficult to remember anything. Thoughts would come and go, but nothing stayed. I constantly drew a blank. Old familiar Bible stories, names of loved ones, the combination to my bike lock, and remembering what I was doing moment by moment, all seemed to be lost on me.

Regaining clarity began with a simple prayer: Remind me, Father. Not, Help me to remember, but, Remind me. Remind me of your presence. Let it fill my consciousness and remove any sense of fear or disease. I am always and only in a state of conscious awareness of You and of every idea that You—Mind—include.

At other times my heart would simply say, Thank you, Lord. Thank you for knowing what I need to know, thank you for supplying me with your ideas and knowledge. Thank you for caring for me, remembering that I am your child and that I'm not alone.
