Prayer for Aging
Dear Heavenly Father, dear Mother Earth,
Although I accept the nature of life and I know the body must age, at times I lose faith in my own design. I ask for your help to recognize once more the perfection of all things and all organic life on earth. As I begin to slow down, a time for reflection is upon me. Slowing down is a gift that only aging can truly give. Presence of mind becomes one of each moment, where no past or future is needed.
I surrender all that I am to the divine intelligence as I embrace this stage of life. Though the unfolding is unpredictable and without total assurance, I am learning anew, as I always do, to trust the perfection of life.
