Long Prayer:

 

Heavenly Father, I come before You today to pray for the repose of the soul of my departed loved one. I ask that You would grant them eternal rest in Your loving embrace, and that Your light may shine upon them.


Lord, I also pray for the family and friends who are left behind, that You would comfort them in their grief and provide them with the strength and courage to face the days ahead. Help them to find solace in the knowledge that their loved one is now in Your presence, and that they will one day be reunited in Your heavenly kingdom.


As we remember and honor the life of our departed loved one, let us also be reminded of the hope and promise of eternal life that You have given us through Your Son, Jesus Christ.


In Your holy and precious name, I pray for the eternal rest and peace of my departed loved one. Amen.
