Prayers for Everyday

VISITING

Leave a comment

Today, Lord, is my time to visit
residents of the Health Care Center
of our retirement community.
On this floor the door is locked
so residents can’t wander off.
Some are bedfast.
Some walk a short distance.
Most gather in the television room.
One sits in the dining room
and looks out the window.
For some old age is a fearsome time.
Others are cheerful and content.
They tell of long lives of service
in your kingdom.
Your love surrounds us all, Lord.
We are in your care.

1 Timothy 5:1-2:
Do not speak harshly to an older man, but speak to him as to a father, to younger men as brothers, to older women as mothers, to younger women as sisters—with absolute purity.

Hymn: Soon and Very Soon
