10.1.13 Arrow Prayer: Lord, thanks for letting me talk to You today. I found myself thinking today of some hurts and it makes me think of some long-term hurts I have that I wish I could just forget. With this ever fading memory of mine in older age, I am confident some day I won't remember much of anything! Ah, humor in Your creation! Help me to keep my focus on loving people. I know I've forgiven them, but memories do not just erase and thoughts come back. Sometimes it is good to remember to protect myself from being hurt again and I truly believe I can remember and forgive at the same time! For me, the key is "letting go" of the hurt when I do remember. Help me Lord, to let go of the hurt, to not feel emotional pain when I remember. Help me to show through my actions forgiveness and love, even to those who have hurt me. 1 Peter 4:8 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.
