Prayer

Independence

How frail is humanity! How short is life, how full of trouble! (Job 14:1; NLT).

They suffer painfully; their life is full of trouble (Job 14:22; NLT).

The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised (Job 1:21; NIV).

When you were young, you were able to do as you liked; you dressed yourself and went wherever you wanted to go. But when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and others will dress you and take you where you don’t want to go (John 21:18; NLT).

 

Lord,
Independence
Is a brief illusion –

We never know
When it will be removed.

Then we must depend
On people’s kindness,

So, may we help others,
While we can.
