Prayer for the Jubilee Day for Older Persons

Lord Jesus, you promised, “Behold I make all things new.” Renew us in mind and body. Help us to use our years of experience by sharing our wisdom with enthusiasm and imagination. Expand our concerns that we might be ever more creative in helping others, especially younger people, who may be looking for guidance and support. We thank you, Lord Jesus, for the beauty of years, the freshness of dreams, and the encouragement of happy memories. Let our lives, at this time, be second springs, bursting with the joyous colors of hope, the warm breezes of love, and the delicate showers of grace which nurture our continuous growth.

Bless all who love us and all whom we love. Unite us ever more closely as members of your body on earth until the day we reign with you forever.

We pray to grow in wisdom and grace as older members of God’s beautiful creation.
