Every one of these Orange County California nursing homes have 100+ residents calling them home.
These are our neighbors, our community. It is our mission field.
Help us be good neighbors. For over 10 years Amazing Grace Ministries has been the friendly consistent visitor…  sharing the joy and sorrow of life with each other, that’s what we do for many, let’s not forget the elderly.

A Prayer for the Vulnerable and Those Who Care for Them

summer13-prayerOur gracious Father, today we seek you on behalf of the millions of people who live in care facilities in our country. The elderly, the mentally challenged, those who have suffered severe injuries, those ravaged by diseases like MS and Cerebral Palsy, all of them vulnerable and with little or no voice in the kind of treatment they receive. Given the opportunity all of them would gladly accept your healing touch and leave these places.

Father, I pray that you would protect them, that You would make Yourself known to them, and that they would feel Your presence. Would You whisper in their ears Your love and devotion to them who are helpless. Remind them that You are the Father of true mercy.

Send believers who know Your mercy, to minister to them. Lord we believe that even if we can’t communicate with them, You can and You do. Father, give us Your heart and Your eyes that we may see them the way You see them. Lord, we make ourselves available to serve them as You direct.

We pray for the believers who work in these places. Grant them favor to gain the positions of leadership within the organization from where they may make stands for righteousness. Manifest your strength and endurance in them to bear the burden of caring for these people. May they be as wells continually pouring out Your life-giving water. May the Light which You have put in them draw their unbelieving co-workers into a saving faith in You. Instill Your love for the helpless in their hearts.

Jesus, you wept and we weep too. We pray all this in Your holy name, Amen.irish-judy
