It is so hard Lord to see my dad starting to become so forgetful and seems to be losing his memory, and I pray that in Your grace and mercy You would show us what to do to prevent this from advancing any further.. and even to reverse the problem.
Lord, You are the one Who designed our minds and our bodies and You are the only one that can truly help him and heal him at this time. Open our eyes to discover if there is anything that we can do to address this issue – whether it is with diet or exercise or medication or anything else. Give us the wisdom we pray to help my dad, as we don’t want this to advance any further – it is so painful.
I pray that You would draw very close to him throughout both the day and the night-time hours. Guide his hesitating steps, keep him from stumbling, protect him when he is in unfamiliar surroundings and prevent him from becoming agitated, upset and frustrated, when he is unable to clearly communicate his needs and wishes to us.
Help my dad.. and all of us, to be willing to accept the advancing years and the deterioration of our health and failing memories. May the angel of Your presence encamp around him and may he feel You every closer to himself in his advancing years – in Jesus name we pray,
