10 Prayers for the Wild Space Beyond Midlife
Fulfilling My Potential
As I enter this new stage of life, I hope to understand everything that has eluded me, to resolve all of life’s issues, to make my mark, to mend my relationships and mature spiritually.
But my aspirations, even as lofty as these, exhaust me.
God, help me heal my striving for perfection, and simply be an ordinary person who loves you. Help me to stop trying so hard to get it right, and trust that loving you, alone, is the fulfillment of my true human potential.
