Isaiah 46 verse 5

 

Isaiah 46:4  And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.
 
A great and sweet promise to those of us who are faced with the prospect of old age, or have relatives who are old or faced with the fears of what might happen as they advance in years.

Psalm 71 verses 9, 18

Psalms 71:9  Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.

A marvelous prayer that should become dearer to us with every passing day. 

If you have an old parent, grandparent, relataive or friend, it can be a stark reminder of what could one day be your own state: old age, failing strength.

This is a prayer that you can pray with the other person for himself or herself, and simultaneously for you, no matter what your age, but all the more relevantly and poignantly when you yourself are in the autumn or winter of your life.
