Lord, the twilight of my life is upon me. There are truly more sunsets in my past than there are sunsets I have yet to see. Until the light of my final sunset turns to darkness, I have many questions that I prayerfully ask of you.
Have I done all the things you created me to do? Have I done any of them? Are there things I have yet to accomplish—things known only to you? Do I have talents I have not yet discovered or developed to the best of the abilities you gave me? Do I even possess the wisdom to understand your answers to such questions that I send to you each day in my prayers?
How am I to know the answers to these questions? Am I even supposed to know or is it for others to proclaim the merits of my service to you after I am gone? Will they say I served you well or will they mourn because of the many things I failed to do for you?
Lord, you have blessed me with good health and a wonderful life. You surrounded me with family and friends I hold dear. For all these many blessings, and so much more, I am grateful and give you thanks each day.
Lord, I ask that you help me understand what you would have me do in the days yet to come. I pray you help me be the person you created me to be and give me the strength to serve you completely each day in the twilight of my earthly existence.
May your twilight of life be a blessing to you and others as you seek answers to many questions and serve God as he would have you do.
