A Prayer for My Dad on His 90th Birthday

Lord God,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
You were there
in Hutchinson, Kansas,
when a boy was born
to David and Bessie Hostetler,
and named Charles Vernon.

Today, he turns ninety.
Thank you for his long life,
and continued health,
and the three sons he raised
with his wife, my mother.
Thank you for the heritage of faith
he received
and passed on.

On this day
and every day hence,
please bless him mightily
and grant that he may enjoy his life,
his loves,
his puzzles,
his meals,
and peace,
in Jesus' name, amen.
