A prayer in old age

A prayer in old age
God, I am old and getting older; I find it difficult to accept the conditions of my age.
I thank you for the grace you have given me to do so much!
I seek your blessings on those who are totally out of action on account of problems of age and health.
May they be able to accept their sufferings and their inaction.
May I be able to accept my own.
As days go by, I am getting weaker and more dependant.
Bless generously those on whom I depend and who are so helpful to me.
God give me the courage to accept cheerfully the burdens of age and the confidence to live through them until you call me home to yourself!
