Those in Nursing Homes
Rise in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly and revere your God. I am the Lord. (Leviticus 19:32- NIV)
CONSIDER: With COVID restrictions caring for those in nursing homes is not an easy thing to do. Over 1.5 million Americans live in these facilities today, and with visiting restrictions we need to pray for them daily and look for other ways we can show our love for them. Jesus told us, “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:40).
PRAY: Lord, we are thankful for nursing homes and for those who dedicate their lives to care for our older friends. For those living in these homes, we ask for comfort and joy. We pray they feel your presence and know they are precious to you. We pray they are treated with dignity and respect. We also ask You to be with their families and caregivers who have a challenging job. Please give them strength when they become tired, and help them to be sensitive to the needs of these wonderful loved ones. In Jesus’ name, Amen
