A few special prayers

Lord, forgive this child of any sins that she may have committed.
If it is your will, then recognize her as a lamb of your fold and a sheep of your flock.
Send your holy angels to protect he and his family from all spiritual harm, to guide and direct them, to counsel and defend them.
Take this child into the paradise that you have prepared for those who love you.
Let her stand in the resurrection of the just on the Last Day and live with you in your glory forever more.

A Prayer For The Dead
God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.

Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for my family,
relatives and friends,
and for all the dead known to You alone.

In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever.


Prayer of Solace
May Christ support us all the day long, till the shadows lengthen, and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over and our work is done. Then in his mercy may he give us a safe lodging, and holy rest and peace at the last.
