  A Prayer of a mature Woman: “Do not be far from me”mature-woman

And now, Lord, what do I wait for? Save me from all my sins. O Lord, hear my prayer and listen to my cry. Do not be quiet when You see my tears so I may have joy again before I go and am no more.

I have a safe place in you, O Lord. Let me never be ashamed. I will be glad to give You a gift on the altar. I will give thanks to Your name, O Lord, for it is good. For You have taken me out of all trouble. And my eyes have looked without fear.

Because You are right and good, take me out of any trouble I may have brought upon myself. Turn Your ear to me and save me.  Be a rock to me where I live, where I may always come and where I will be safe.

For You are my hope, O Lord God. You are my trust since I was young.  You have kept me safe from birth. It was You Who watched over me from the day I was born. My praise is always of You.

And now, Lord, what do I wait for? Save me from all my sins. O Lord, hear my prayer and listen to my cry. Do not be quiet when You see my tears so I may have joy again before I go and am no more.

Do not be far from me! Save me by Your name, O God. And stand with me by Your power. Hear my prayer, O God. Listen to the words of my mouth. You are my Helper. You are the One Who keeps my soul alive. I will always have hope and I will praise You more and more. My mouth will tell about how right and good You are and about Your saving acts all day long for there are more than I can know. I will come in the strength of You, Lord. I will tell about how right and good You are and You alone.

And now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in You. Save me from all my sins. O Lord, hear my prayer and listen to my cry. Do not be quiet when You see my tears so I may have joy again before I go and am no more.

You have taught me from when I was young. And I will faithfully tell about Your great works. Even as I grow old and my hair is turning white, O God, please do not leave me alone. Let me be a testament of Your strength to those I love and a testament about Your power to all who are to come. O God, You are right and good, as the heavens are high. You have done great things, O God. Who is like You?

O Lord, let me know my end and how many days I have to live. Let me know that I do not have long to stay here. You have made each of my days as long as a hand is wide. My whole life is nothing in Your eyes. Everyone is only a breath, at best. They walk here and there like a shadow. They store up riches, not knowing who will gather them.

And now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in You. Save me from all my sins. O Lord, hear my prayer and listen to my cry. Do not be quiet when You see my tears so I may have joy again before I go and am no more.
