Fulfilled living in later life
Pilgrims Friend Shottermill 28


For more than 200 years Pilgrims' Friend Society has relied on prayer for everything that we need, and time and time again, the Lord has answered our prayers and has kept us bearing fruit in and out of season.

Our founders not only sought to raise funds to help the poor, they also petitioned Christians to pray for their ministry. To this day we have daily devotions in all our homes and at our Support Office, praying to God for all that we need, and thanking Him for His continued goodness to us. So we really do value your prayers.

Father in the name of Jesus, we give thanks to you for Homesdale, wanstead, and your Saints who have made this Home their covering. We give thanks to you for all you have prepared for us in our twilight years, for every person in this home, and those who look after their well being. You have considered your children's need according to your riches in Glory. Your word say in Isaiah 46:4 "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. To you be the Glory the honour and praise. To you O Lord be all the Praises and thanks. We submit this prayer in Jesus Name, and in the Power of Holy Spirit. AMEN.

Thank you, Father, for the fellowship we experience as the family of God with others working within Pilgrims' Friend Society. Thank you for equipping each one of us with exactly the attributes and skills we need for the roles you have planned for us, even before we were born. Thank you for the encouragement that we give one another. Holy Father, may we see this strengthened within the Society and as we reach out to others in churches and faith groups to share our knowledge and experience. Amen.

Dear Heavenly Father I pray for a greater understanding among the young of the needs of older people and the realization that there is such a wealth of experience and knowledge available from older people available to help younger people in their own lives.
Heavenly Father, may each Care Home be a haven of peace; a place where friendship and fellowship develop. So may Jesus Name and God's Kingdom be know and shared. Amen

Dear Father Psalm 31 tells us that "our times are in your hands". Thank you for the long time that you have given to older Christians and I thank you for how I have been encouraged by experiences of your love at work in hard times shared with me. Thank you too for the shorter times that you have given to younger people and for their energy and vigour that spurs me on! But most of all, with so much going on around us I thank you that our times are in your hands, hands that created this world and loved it so much that you sent Jesus our saviour. Amen T
