Dear, Heavenly Father, As time on earth ebbs, it’s easy to fall prey to the devil’s claim that our lives are over, that our lifetime of building has come to an end. As I get older, I often feel those things happening. My mind isn’t as sharp as it used to be. My hearing is fading. My energy is spent and tasks that once were easy, have become difficult and often undoable.
However, I know that you have my life all mapped out with my best interests always on your mind. You knew before I even came into existence, where life would take me. The ups and downs of life were placed there to strengthen my relationship with you and draw me closer. The goals I set often seemed impossible, but you have always been at my side to carry me to each one.
As this day unfolds, I ask that you be with me and my husband as we face difficult decisions that will affect our future and our security. I am confident that you will be with us as we muddle through yet another turning point in our lives. Give us strength, discernment, wisdom and patience. Clear the cobwebs from our decision making and make answers clear to us.
I ask this and all things in the name of your precious Son, Jesus Christ.
