Prayer for Our Holy Dead

Almighty God our Creator, through the power of Your love, Christ Your only Son redeemed us, conquering sin and death. Jesus died and rose to new life, and returned to You in glory.

May our brothers and sisters whose earthly remains rest here in expectation of a like resurrection, share His victory and enjoy the vision of Your glory forever. Show Your compassion and forgiveness to each of them, and to all who die in Christ. Make them one with Jesus forever in the joy of Your presence.

May the burning love of Your Holy Spirit guide the hearts and minds of those who mourn the loss of their loved ones. May we all know Your peace.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.
