A Prayer for Dementia patients based on Psalms 46:10Father please help those who are going through this deterioration of health. Lord they may not understand why they have this condition, but I pray that in the unknown mysteries of the world they can remain still and know that You are God. Dementia does not take away their identity in You, for You are the Good a Shepherd, we are Your sheep and Your child. Thank You for Your tender mercies towards those with this condition, we pray, Amen.
