Prayer for Elderly Parents

Four Doctor Hiemstra
The Four Doctor Hiemstras

By Stephen W. Hiemstra

Holy Father,

All praise and glory be to you for providing us faithful parents,

role models to guide us through the wilds of life

before we could tell our left hand from the right.

Thank you for their care, sacrifice, and wisdom—

may we be so caring, so willing to sacrifice, and so wise,

and forgive us when we are not!

Be with them when we are unable that they would never be alone.

Protect them from those that prey on the elderly, from unexpected accidents, and from needless worry.

In the power of your Holy Spirit, grant us the strength and wisdom to be worthy children and loving caregivers—

that we might enjoy our remaining times together and provide a role model to the young.

In Jesus precious name, Amen.
