The Challenges of Growing Older
This prayer, based on Psalm 71, asks God to be with us as we grow older and our lives change. Suddenly there are new challenges which we need God’s help with.
A Prayer as I Grow Older
Based on Psalm 71
I come to you for protection Lord.
You keep me from shame.
Those around me don’t understand me now.
I trust you though.
When I was a baby you sheltered me in my family.
Those around me showed your care for me.
But now everything is different.
I’m not a child anymore.
I change as I grow older.
My friendships change also.
Some of my former friends laugh at me now.
Or they seem to want me to fail.
Your love is always constant.
In each stage of life there are new challenges.
But I know I can always count on you.
That gives me hope and joy.
I am grateful for your presence as my days pass.
