Praying for those with dementia

dementia.jpg

 

Father of all goodness,

your Son brought healing of mind and body

to show that your Kingdom is here.

In our hour of need, we look to you,

we seek to understand your purpose,

Through Joseph, the faithful and honourable husband of Mary,

you show us care and compassion in adversity,

you give us a model of generosity and care.

We pray for those whose lives we share

and who live with the knowledge of weakness,

whose memory now fades,

whose enjoyment of life’s story is changing.

Make us aware of the needs of others,

of the dignity of life at every stage,

of the collective memory that we own.

Bless those who care for the sick, who share the journey.

Your Kingdom come, Your will be done,

in Your good time.

We ask this through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

  1. I was a caregiver for years and years. I loved taking care of the elderly.
