Here is a retirement prayer that’s useful for retirement ceremonies or to use as your personal prayer for a friend who is retiring.
Dear Heavenly Father,
We come to you in thankfulness for the many years of service given by our friend and colleague who is retiring. We thank you for the long term contributions they have made in the execution of daily tasks, in their loyalty to our organization and in their sharing of their experience and wisdom with others. We are appreciative of their hard work and dedication. They have adapted to many changes over the years and have made sacrifices of their personal time when the job demanded it. They have been a mentor and friend to their fellow employees and have worked faithfully despite their own personal obligations, joys and challenges.
We pray your continued blessings on them during this next phase of their life. May your Presence be with them as they choose new paths and explore new horizons. May they be blessed with strong networks of friends and family to enjoy the journey that lies ahead. Keep them vigorous in body, mind, soul and spirit. Open new doors of service that will satisfy their desire to give and that will make a lasting difference in our world. May they find many receptive hearts and minds for the wisdom they have to offer and many recipients to receive their love and care.
Today we leave them with this blessing from the book of Matthew: “Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!” (Matthew 25:23)
And so we end our prayer, thankful for what has been and grateful for what has yet to be.

Dear God, you have given me so many blessings in my life, biggest of all my two beautiful children that turned out so well. For this I thank you.
With your help God and that of their mom, we managed to steer them and help them with opportunities to get them to at least some decent start in life. Bless them with abundance please.
But God, as my friends and family are preparing for and looking forward to their retirement in comfort, I have to start off once again, as so many times before. A whole lifetime of trying to acquire wealth and to be able not to look in others’ eyes at retirement age, has borne no fruits. I feel like giving up after so many attempts, but as You’ve given me the the strenght and courage before, to keep on trying and persevering, I know You will help me again.
Only, this time God, I ask that you shower me with the abundance that will also give me the opportunity to look forward to a carefree retirement.
Even though I don’t know how yet God, may I leave it in your hands to give me the guided path?
