At the End of Life


For those who have a loved one who is dying, who is facing the end of life, these holy days of Hallowmas, can be quite hard.  I know what it is to walk with someone who is facing the end of life.  It is hard for both the one who is dying and the ones who love that one.  So for these holy days where we remember and celebrate those who have gone before, let us also pray for those who are dying and those who are caring for those who are dying.

Let us pray:

Gracious and Loving God,

     You are closer than our hands and feet

     You are closer than the very air that we breathe

Comfort those who are facing the end of life

Console their loved ones

Give strength and perseverance to the caregivers

Envelop us all with Your loving presence

Grant us Your abiding peace  

Walk with us as we grieve

Assuage our fears

Remind us that we are not alone

Your Holy Spirit



               and Carries us through

As we face the end of life, 

      May we share in each other’s lives

           Give us time to hear one another’s stories

               Give us space and grace to say goodbye

                    Give us hope in the face of despair 

                         And light in the face of darkness

In these sacred last days

     May we be evermindful that You accompany us every step of the way. 

In the name of Immanuel, God with us, we pray, Amen.
