Let us remember…that we are in the holy presence of God.
+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Precious Lord,
I believe You are the resurrection and the life for all who trust in You.
Bless this day all those who are grieving the loss of a loved one.
May those who have died enjoy Your promise of eternal joy.
I pray in Jesus’ name,
Amen!
