Let me share this Prayer with you (adapted from Voices Together)

God, in our grieving

let your peace rest on the Wagler family

and all who love them.

For the fullness of life together,

for shared sorrows and joys,

for the blessing of treasured memories,

we give you thanks.

For words unwise or left unsaid,

for things done or left undone,

grant your forgiveness,

and help us to forgive.

During our time of mourning and gratitude,

comfort our hearts and strengthen our faith

as we await the day of our reunion,

in the power of the risen Christ.


I also invite you to spend time over these next days, reading and praying Psalm 23, a familiar and beautiful Psalm.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,

He restores my soul.

He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil, for you are with me,

your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.

You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

May God encourage you as you pray and lift others up to the Lord.
