Description

Offer to pray for, and with, elderly people who are suffering physically or emotionally. Give them opportunities to mention friends or family members they would like you to pray for as well.

Rationale

A Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) poll, found that 370,000 over-75s have no regular daily contact with other people. The church can help reduce loneliness for older people, by offering services and support. Praying with elderly people identifies with their needs, and changes situations, as God works in their lives.

Outcome

Support and encouragement for elderly people.
