“Now also when I am old and gray-headed, O God, do not forsake me.” Psalm 71:18
“Keep my soul, and deliver me; Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for You.” Psalm 25:20-21
“Listen to Me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, who have been upheld by Me from birth, Who have been carried from the womb: even to your old age, I am He, and even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.” Isaiah 46:3-4
God receives all His people into a union far more intimate than that which connects the parent with the child. A mother may forget even her sucking child; but the eyes of God are upon His people for good, continually. His people are graven on the palms of His hands and dwell securely in His heart. They may expect everything from Him, and we shall evermore please Him in proportion to the strength of out confidence in Him.
I would therefore “be anxious for nothing — but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving” make my requests known to Him (Philippians 4:6), always trusting that He will as certainly carry me through the difficulties to come as He has done through the difficulties which I have already met; so that I may even give Him thanks for it beforehand.
O my God, give me faith to trust You, love to cleave to You, and indulge me with sweet and intimate communion with Your blessed self! My soul, grasp the promise, plead it, and expect it to be made good!
Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (1690—1774)

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
