In our retirement complex, Lord,
only a few people
still have paying jobs.
Many volunteer
in their churches,
in our community,
or in the world at large.
Sometimes people
think that work
determines their value.
Then when people retire
they feel that they are useless.
Lord, we rely on your love
to give us a sense of worth.
Sharing your love
makes us all valuable.

Matthew 10:29-31:
“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. And even the hairs of your head are all counted. So do not be afraid; you are of more value than many sparrows.”

Song: His Eye Is on the Sparrow
