Passing on the baton

Dear God, sometimes in life we find ourselves handing over to our successor,
making way for the next generation,
allowing someone else to take a turn,
stepping aside that someone younger, fitter, more adequately gifted than we are may take control.

And when such times occur our head may say, ‘let go’
whilst our heart wistfully resists and says, ‘hold on!’

And so today we pray for all whose time has come to let the baton fall.
At the conclusion of their task let the knowledge of completeness
overrule the empty fear of ending, and, in both laying down
and taking up, may your will be done
and your peace known.

Ian Fosten
