Lord, yesterday I visited
an old friend in the Health Care Center.
She continues to radiate your Spirit
though her health is declining.
She is an inspiration to many people
from her church, who enjoy visiting her.
How grateful we are, Lord,
for the continuous line of Spiritual witness
from your day to the present as
your Spirit imparts eternal life.
Do not let us weaken as we approach the change
from this life to the next,
but let us rejoice ever more fully in your love. Amen.
But our citizenship is in heaven, and it is from there that we are expecting a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. He will transform the body of our humiliation that it may be conformed to the body of his glory, by the power that also enables him to make all things subject to himself.
