Lord, how long do you plan for us to live?
The Bible says that Methuselah lived 900 years.
Recently life expectancy in our country
was upped by ten years.
Some eighty year olds are still employed.
In our community people are slowing down,
but they still do many tasks,
and not always the work they did
when they were younger.
They enjoy doing new things.
Keep us growing in your Kingdom, Lord.
We are not done yet.
Thus all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty-nine year and he died.
Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and through grace gave us eternal comfort and good hope, comfort your hearts and strengthen them in ever good work and word..
