Father God, I lift up those who care for ailing family and aging parents. Shore them up with your righteous right hand. Transfer enough love to them that they overflow it to the ones in their care. Your love heals. Your love comforts. Your love deals with pain. Your love keeps us going back. Your love outdoes any other. Your love inspires eternal hope. You keep us in your care. You hold us in your powerful, yet tender hands. I praise you in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children, to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.” (Psalm 103:17 ESV)
