Dear Lord God, how I thank You for my parents Who have been such a wonderful support to me throughout the whole my life. They taught me of You from being a child and I cannot thank You enough for placing me in a family that knows and loves You.
Father, they are now elderly and becoming infirm - and increasingly they are both struggling to carry out the simplest of tasks.
Lord I pray that I may be given the strength and the ability to care for them both as long as they need my help. I know that this is a mammoth undertaking and of myself I do not have the strength or resources to undertake such a task – and yet I want to honour my parents and You Lord, by caring for them in their twilight years of their lives.
Help me Father to tend for them lovingly and wisely and keep them I pray from the unpleasantries of ill health and from the difficulties of becoming bed-ridden.
Lord they are both Your children and I pray that Your love will surround them and that Your blessing will pour down in great measure upon each of them - until You take them to be with Yourself.. in Jesus name I pray,
