A Heart that Grieves

August 3, 2020

Lord, I ask your blessing and your favor in
a special way on all those I hold dear who have
left this life.

I know that the heart which believes is the
heart that grieves sweetly, since in your love
we are all close to one another, never far apart,
and that raised up by You we shall never see
corruption again, never taste death any more.

Lord, through your death and resurrection bless
all my loved ones departed. I commend them
to you, and ask you to bless them with the gift
of eternal life.

May they pass through the sleep of death to be
awakened by the sound of your voice calling
them into your kingdom of glory.

May you open to them the gates of paradise,
and welcome them into their heavenly home,
that they may share in the inheritance of your

May we all meet again in your love.
