Prayers

We pray for the souls of those recently departed

 

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. AMEN

For those who have gone before us,
Seeds planted in your rich pasture
With the hope of life eternal.
May their enduring spirit live on,
Enriching and empowering our lives,
Their love linger,
Their presence be near,
Until we meet once more. AMEN

TRINITY

Let us remember the Spirit of God
O Holy Spirit of God we thank you that your are with us at all times and in all places. For the guidance which you give to us, for the knowledge which you have given to us for your continual upholding, strengthening and protecting power. We thank you that you are with us Spirit of God
Forgive us if we have tried to live alone, and have been reluctant to walk with you or draw strength from you. AMEN

 

Almighty and eternal God,

you have revealed yourself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

and live and reign in the perfect unity of love:

hold us firm in this faith,

that we may know you in all your ways

and evermore rejoice in your eternal glory,

who are three Persons yet one God,

now and for ever.  AMEN
