Lord, you know that
many widows and widowers
live in this retirement community.
It is especially difficult for those
who are confined in bed.
I am one of a group assigned
to visit them since
some no longer have family
or friends who are able to come.
Help me to be sensitive to their needs
as I share your presence with them. Amen.

James 1:27:
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.

Hymn: Love Divine, All Loves Excelling
