Prayer for Taking on the Care of Parents

In the circle of life, O Gracious One, your signs of love shine out in every situation, through dying and rebirth, growing up and growing old, holding on and letting go. Now, your servant P will be looking after her parent. She who gave care now needs to receive care; she who once were supported by her now needs to be a supporter. We pray this family may gracefully accept these changes. Grant them wisdom, good humor, patience and hope, as life continues according to your constant love, and bless their days with wellness, safety, and peace; through Christ our Redeemer. Amen.
