Prayer for a Visit to a Cemetery

September 11, 2019

Lord, I come here today
to revere the memory of those
whom you have called from this life.

I come to the place where their remains
were returned to the earth
in the way of all flesh.

Earth to earth and dust to dust.
Here is where they were entrusted
into your hands, into your love.

Here is where they were given
the final farewell, and prayers
for a safe journey into your keeping.

Here is where I especially ask you
to bestow on them the joy of your peace,
so that together with you
in your eternal home,
where this world of dust and ashes
and the fragility of this life
no longer hold sway,
they will find eternal rest.
