Prayer for Those Who Mourn
As we remember the brevity of life on earth, we share in the grief with those who mourn, trusting that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too, might live a new life.
O God of grace and glory, we thank you for giving us _______ to know and to love as a companion in our pilgrimage on earth. In your boundless compassion, console us who mourn. Give us faith to see that death has been swallowed up in the victory of our Lord Jesus Christ, so that we may live in confidence and hope, until, by your call, we are gathered to our heavenly home in the company of all your saints, thought Jesus Christ our, Savior and Lord. Amen
