For the Aged

"Look with mercy, O God our Father, on all whose increasing

years bring them weakness, distress, or isolation.  Provide for

them homes of dignity and peace; give them understanding

helpers, and the willingness to accept help; and, as their

strength diminishes, increase their faith and their assurance

of your love.  This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our

Lord."     Amen.
