Heavenly Father, as the advancing years become increasingly evident in my sagging body, decreasing speed and dwindling strength, as well as my various memory lapses, I pray that You would give me the wisdom to embrace my advancing years with grace and enthusiasm, rather than view it as something to dread.
I pray that You would enable me to age with grace and embrace my senior citizen status with the desire to make every day count, and my old age and retired status to be considered as an advantage rather than see it as an affliction that has to be endured.
Help me to look to You increasingly for all my needs as the years roll by, and thank You that You have promised that Your grace is sufficient and is made perfect in my weakness. Thank You, that this world is not my home but that my citizenship is in heaven. But until that time when You take me to be with Yourself, I pray that I may be active in spirit, soul and body and live my life as unto the Lord. In Jesus' name I pray,
