I’m Older – Not Old

A Prayer As I Grow Older

“O Lord, You know I am growing older!

Keep me from closing my eyes to the fact.

Keep me from becoming a pest, a self – appointed sage with the annoying habit of thinking I must say something on every subject and on every occasion.

Keep my mind free from the repetition of past experiences and endless details. Seal my lips about my aches and pains.

I do not ask for improved memory, but for less cockiness about the memory of others. Teach me to admit that sometimes I am mistaken.

Make me sweeter and mellower as my age progresses. Let me never grow old – only older.

May it be said of me,

‘Though our  outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.’

(2 Corinthians 4:16)”
