Prayer of the Angels to Remember Christ: May you Forget me and Remember Jesus

Not infrequently do I think it necessary to pray for the invisibility of the angels:
May you forget my name, my face, my presence and may you be filled with the memory of the Name of Christ, his holy Face, and his divine Presence.
This is important for any kind of sacred ministry. Whether it is for those serving at the altar, those teaching the doctrine of Christ, or serving the poor and needy. It is especially valuable when people find in us some good which they might attribute to us rather than the good Lord who gave it to us. It is also healthy to have this kind of self-abasement before God and man.
