Prayer for Cemetery Sunday.

31/Jul/2020

Cemetery Prayer.


May God's perpetaul light shine upon the faces of all laid to rest here.
May the lives they lived in our homes continue to inspire and to guide us on the way.
May the memories we carry and share in stories, keep them part of our lives and part of our family.
May the gentle Summer rains fall like tears from the skies of Heaven to bless them.
May the wild flowers and the Summer meadows whisper their prayer in the gentle breeze of silence.
May the birds of the dawn chorus sing their prayer of the beauty and joy of Heaven.
May we always reverence this sacred clay as the holy ground that holds seeds of hope.
May each time we visit, walk, sit, pray and listen here bring us closer to the heart of God's kindness.
May the Angels guide them, the Siants protect them and the prayer of Mary hold them in the light. 
AMEN.
