He said to me, ”My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Cor. 12:9 (NIV)
And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!‘ Matt. 25:4 (NLT)
Dear heavenly Father, increasingly, I’ve been running into friends early in the journey of learning how to care for a loved one with a memory loss disorder. Having walked that path with my dad, my heart is softened and tuned to pray today for others, someplace in that story.
“Can a woman forget her nursing child?” (Isa. 49:15); maybe not at birth, but later in life, she can, even as my dad forgot my face and name. What can possibly prepare us for the season when our spouses or parents, grandparents or close friends begin to forget little things, then big things, and finally us? Father, only your grace is sufficient for these chapters in our lives, and your grace comes the quickest and easiest to us when we accept our weakness. Your strength is perfected in our weakness, Father, so, first of all, help us to be weak, out of control, and childlike in dependency on you. It’s hard to “go there,” but necessary
Rescue us from our denial about what’s really going on in the life of a loved one. Spin helps no one, minimizing minimizes nothing. Help us to accept the unacceptable—life as we know is about to change. It’s not the end of your Story, but it is our story right now.
Also Father, grant the clearest diagnosis, the best care plan, and the resources to provide that care—emotionally, spiritually, physically, and financially. None of us is sufficient. We need you; we need one another.
Father, help us to love well, when the pain of change is overwhelming. Help us steward the fear, anger, frustration, and loss. Help us to know that when our loved ones forget us, and seemingly forget you, you will never forget them, or us. Great is your faithfulness; steadfast is your love; and perfect is the end of your Story. We praise, bless, and adore you… in Jesus’ tender and triumphant name.

Liz and I have written posts concerning the role of religion, prayer or belief in God may play in bringing comfort to Alzheimer’s patients and caregivers.
Recently I read a post, God’s Help Against Alzheimer’s?, on Med Journal Watch. The writer speculates whether religious rituals and prayer help keep the brain active and memory better. Or do people with a better memory have a better capacity to pray?
What do you think? Read the complete post and ponder it.
The author mentioned a Canadian study: “People with Alzheimer’s disease who pray often will less suffer from memory decline than non-religious people.”
How to improve memory- How to memorize quickly
Salam my brothers and sisters,
Today we will share with you how to improve memory. And how to memorize quickly. Many of us complain about poor memory and not being able to remember things. We read books but don’t remember. We meet new people but easily forget their names. Our children also suffer from memory loss due to which they find it hard to remember things. In Sha Allah in this article, you will learn 2 powerful wazaif for how to increase your and your children memory. With the mercy of Allah, your memory will become powerful. And your brain power will boost.
Allah created all human beings with different qualities and traits some have been given good memories and huge intellects whereas others have equally unique qualities in different fields. Having weak memory is not a defect it is natural. The question is, so how do we actually strengthen our memory? In Sha Allah keep reading and learning.
In order to achieve strong memory after every fard salah. Place your right hand on your forehead. And recite the attribute of Allah. Ya Qawiyyu 11 times. By doing this In Sha Allah with the mercy of Allah you will be blessed with an increase in memory.
Qawiyyu is the name/ attribute of Allah. Which means the most strong the most powerful.
Method 2: How to improve memory and concentration while studying
In the morning after praying Fajr prayer. Recite surah Alam nashrah 3 times.And then blow into a glass of water and drink the water. Be habitual of doing this practice in the morning after fajr and reap the benefits. This method will surely make your memory powerful.

In Sha Allah with the mercy of Allah, your children’s memory will be improved. They will be able to memorize everything quickly.
Now we are going to teach you best way to study for exams. Also you can say best prayer for college students. Before reading books and everything just recite this prayer once. Allahummaftah Alaina hikmataka wanshur Alaina rahmataka ya zaljalali wal ikraam.
Also before and after the completion send salawaat (Durood Shareef) upon Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him One Time. In Sha Allah you will remember what you read.
if you want an increase in memory. And you want your memory to be strong and firm then it’s essential that you stay away from sins for sins weaken your memory immensely. Also, eat brain foods.
