I don't want to grow old, God.
I don't want any part of it.
But since I have no power to stop the clock, my prayer is this:
Let me age with grace.
Show me the way, God. Be with me.
Grant health to my body and clarity to my mind.
Give me strength. Help me to overcome my vanity.
Teach me to combat self-pity.
Don't allow me to become set in my ways.
Shield me from isolation and from loneliness.
May the love of my family and friends be my reward
for all the struggles of my youth.
Let all the blessings of age emanate from me.
Let wisdom flow from my mouth,
let compassion flow from my heart,
let acts of kindness flow from my arms,
let faith flow from my soul,
let joy shine forth from my eyes.
Print and share with friends and family.
