Prayer of Obscurity

“Lord, make my life obscure. May I be less well known tomorrow than I am today. May I come to the place where my most intimate of companions, out of ignorance, might address me simply as “Bro." In my quest for obscurity, as I travail the depths of anonymity, may I one day be known to Thee alone.”

Your prayer of obscurity, really touched me in a small, but powerful way.

Isn't St. Anonymous a descendent of the author of the book of Hebrews?

I have prayed this prayer for 15 years now and it's true. No one remembers me even my closest friends from my days at BigSky Community College (Go Big Blue Elk!)
