Praying for a Parent with Alzheimer's
"Take Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding,
Please bless every mother and father who has Alzheimer’s disease.
He was with us children as we learned to walk.
She taught us to cross streets and be safe.
He held us close in the terrors of the darkest nightmares.
She cooked thousands of meals over decades of time.
She changed diapers, Lord, and served you each time she did.
Loving God, the familiar eyes of my mother
Help my beloved father accept the surrender of his life these days.
Give us, the family, the patience, courage and acceptance
