“A Prayer For Esteeming The Elderly”

This blog post really hit home with me. My husband’s grandfather is 92 and he is such a gem in our life. We treasure everyday with him 🙂

A Daily Prayer

Praying man Father, we thrill at the sight of a newborn. We find pleasure in watching an active, playful child. We’re amazed and prayerful as the child grows into their questioning teen years.  And we rejoice as the youth takes on the responsibilities of adulthood and family.  We respond differently to every generation and conclude with respect and honor to those who go before us; the seniors and elderly. They deal with confinement, pain, physical and mental changes, in addition to the repeated losses of friends and family members. Prompt our memories to include them in our activities when possible, to give them personal attention, to pray for them regularly, and to seek them out when they’re among us. Amen.

This Daily Prayer is from this Daily Encouragement message.
