No funerals planned at this time.
God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.
Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for my family,
relatives and friends,
and for all the dead known to You alone.
In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever.
Father of love,
in this hour of deep grief comfort us.
Wrap us in Your strong embrace and
shelter us from the storm.
Take us into Your tender care as we
pour out our heartbreak to You.
Be our place of refuge.
As we look toward the future, calm
our hearts O God and still our
For all life is found in You.
All our being is given to You.
And all our hope begins with You.
Hear us and heal us, in Jesus' name,
