Reminding G!d

עֲשֵׂה עִמָּנוּ צְדָקָה וָחֶֽסֶד וְהוֹשִׁיעֵֽנוּ — תפילות יומיות, נוּסח ספרד

As for us? Rescue us! Act charitably and kindly. (Daily Siddur, Nusakh Sfard)

Astounding. Do we actually need to remind G!d to be charitable and kind? Ridiculous! It is easier, however, to remind G!d than to remind ourselves. Perhaps we will remind ourselves because we remind G!d.
