Heavenly Father, we pray for Melbourne and Victoria that the spread of this terrible virus will halt. Give the Premier and the government wisdom in decision making. Protect health workers and those in the frontline. We bring before you the residents and staff in nursing homes that the spread of the virus will be curtailed.

Respect for the elderly
Intergenerational living is healthy for everyone. The granddaughter who brings her toddler to visit demonstrates her respect for the elders just by her presence and so engender that respect in her children. The grandfather who shares his love of cars and even allows the young ones drive his treasure teaches generosity and trust and also earns respect and love. Let us who are elderly respect and accept ourselves: may we pray for tolerance with our bodies and be grateful for the pauses, give thanks for long life and the hindsight it gives and grow in love and nearness to God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
even to your old age I am he, even when you turn grey I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear;
I will carry and will save. Isaiah 46:4
Mothers’ Union in the UK and Europe is demonstrating its respect for members young and old. It is encouraging members to see a wider role than just organising a branch meeting with a speaker. This involves personal growth and faith-based growth. We are never too old to grow in faith and hope and love as with joyful trust we move towards our Father's home above. Hymn by James McAuley.
