On our 35th day of prayerful reflection, we invite you to join us in prayer for all older persons.
“Bless those who have grown old. Send them loving caretakers who appreciate their wisdom and the richness of their experience. Keep them safe as long as they live and to lead them to their eternal home in Heaven when their work is done on Earth. Bless the families of the elderly with insight and good judgment. Send your Holy Spirit to help them make wise decisions, and grant them the patience to care for those who once cared for them.”
(adapted from Prayer Service – Prayers for the Elderly and Those Who Care for Them by Lynda Palazzolo)
About 40 Days of Prayer
Lent is a welcome time for many Christian, when we open our hearts to Christ and prepare ourselves to go forward in faith through prayer, reflection and living more simply. As part of our Lenten journey, prayer strengthens our faith and moves us to manifest God’s extravagant love in our own lives. This Lenten season (March 1 – April 13), we invite you to join us in 40 Days of Prayer.
Send your prayer intentions
If your or a loved is in need of prayer, please send it our Sisters, and we will remember in our daily prayers during Lent – and beyond. (click here to send us a request online)
Pray With Us
Every day during Lent, we will post a shared prayer intention on our website and Facebook page. We invite you to take a moment during your Lenten reflections to pray for this intention with us. (Click here for the shared prayer intentions calendar)
