a prayer for a funeral
This #prayer was used at a funeral in 2010, but it could be adapted for other uses.
Source of all mercy and giver of comfort: Speak to our hearts as we gather this morning to remember, to laugh, and to weep.
May we hear Your word for our lives spoken clearly.
May we be encouraged by the presence of friends and family.
May we know the touch of your grace.
Fill us with the joy and peace that comes from your presence.
We trust in You and Your will, In the Name of Jesus Christ, Our Lord, we pray, Amen.
