Default Scripture and Agism: Any Refuting Passages?

Peace and Blessings!

I've posted this request on the Scripture forum but since it may also reasonably be considered a social justice topic (in terms of age discrimination), I'd like to post it here, too. I wonder if anyone can help me with some Scriptural passages that refute age as being an obstacle to doing God's work. There are several well-known passages that show that youth is not an impediment (cf. 1 Sam 3:1-18, 1 Sam 16:1-13, Jer 1:4-10, Lk 1:26-38, etc.) but I need some passages that support the thesis that maturity or advanced age is also no impediment to doing God's work. I'd like a balanced approach to my arguments so I need to cover both ends of the spectrum, as it were.

Many thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

Please also feel free to contact me at if you'd like to discuss my request personally.

Pax et Bonum!
