Retirement Prayer

Lord, here I stand with a new horizon ahead of me. I know I am entering a later phase of life, yet I feel so much the same inside.

Help me to seize each sunrise, and fully live each day. May I be guided by You, and walk into this new landscape with hope and confidence.

May I engage with the beauty of creation, and connect with the passions, hopes and dreams I had as when young.

My prayer is not to leave anything behind, but to walk forwards into all I can be, all I can enjoy, and all I can give.

To this new page
The next chapter of my life
- Shared with You.
