Remember the "Pay it Forward" move that inspired us to "change the world" with acts of kindness? Science has discovered we can be kind to our own minds by the way we respond to the issues of life. "Click it Forward" refers to the way we can intentionally activate a little switch in our brain to move from stress-filled responses to peace-filled responses.
The reading today inspires us to do exactly that! Once we've presented our concerns in prayer, then when "requests come to mind again" thank God for the "answers that are on the way." Rehearsing the concerns keeps our minds stuck in lower level thinking that holds us in "a state of tension," minimizing our ability to think creatively and live productively.
Rehearsing thankfulness means I will be kind to my own mind, which incidentally, makes it easier for me to be kind to mankind!
"Clicking it Forward" helps me to "Pay it Forward!"
