Nanay showed me this in a piece of paper. Bigay daw ng isa sa mga bisita n’yang Senior Citizen kanina bago sila mag-Bingo.

I think she fell in love with this prayer. She even asked me to encode it in Word and have it printed out for her other Senior friends!

I may be growing older dear Lord. But I’ll never outgrow my need to talk with You. I’ve come a long way in my life. And I thank You for helping me to get this far. May You continue to watch over me each day.

You are my dearest friend, and you know I’ve had my ups and downs in my life. Although there have been some sorrows, I’ve always been blessed with many joys. Now that I am in my later years, please give me the strength and energy to carry on in the best ways I can. I am so glad to be alive, Lord. Keep me safe from harm. Let me be as free as possible from any help and money worries.

I hope to take things a little easier at this time in my life. Of course at my age, I’m not able to do quite as much as I used to. I am slower now and sometimes it takes me awhile to get going. So please help others to be kind, patient, and understanding toward me. And may I always remember the same way.

Let me look forward to each new day, Lord. Be merciful, and bless my remaining years with happiness and loved ones who care.

  1. Hello there,

    May I know the name of your lola’s friend who gave the prayer? I think it’s from my lola, she wrote it.


    1. Hi, Karen. It was a piece of text that was already moving around in emails some years ago. Eventually, it came to the hands of some old folks in my neighborhood. 🙂
