A Prayer For The Elderly Poem by Walterrean Salley

A Prayer For The Elderly

Rating: 5.0

Dear Lord, as busy
As You must be,
Don’t forget
The elderly.

By Your mighty,
Powerful hand,
Protect seniors
Across the land.

Provide in this
Economic storm—
Food and shelter.
Keep them warm.

And when past-
Echoes chime,
Preserve them
In lonely times.

Quell their fears
Night and day.
Hold their hand,
Guide their way.

Thanks for hearing
This simple plea
And remembering
The elderly.

Yes, it is so that as we approach that time of life, we too want to be remembered. So it should be that those who empathize shall be remembered also. Read mine – I Cannot Return – Adeline
