Please forgive a little indulgence on my part for this week’s suggested prayer. Two years ago today my husband passed away from cancer. Sadly, I know too many people who have died, especially from cancer (including my 22-year-old nephew).
If you have lost a loved one, please accept my condolences.
PRAYER FOR THE DECEASED
In your hands, O Lord, we humbly entrust our brothers and sisters.
In this life you embraced them with your tender love; deliver them now from every evil
and bid them eternal rest.
The old order has passed away: welcome them into paradise,
where there will be no sorrow, no weeping or pain,
but fullness of peace and joy with your Son and the Holy Spirit
forever and ever. Amen
