Merciful Father, bring the promise of eternal life close to those who are nearing the reality of death.
Surround and sustain them with Your everlasting arms. Sustain also their loved ones who wait upon them. Grant them Your Spirit of peace and turn every moment into a measurable awareness of Your holy presence. May the fellowship of the saints become a joyous gathering of welcome and praise: a celebration not only of days gone by, but of the promise of life in Your presence, which is not bound by time nor physical limitation. We pray for Your intercession in the name of Him who was, and is, and is to come, the glorious Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Soli Deo Gloria,
Reverend Dr. Conrad C. Sharps
