PRAYERS IN BEREAVEMENT
Go forth, Christian soul, from this world:
  in the name of God our Lover, who created you,
  in the name of Jesus Christ, who lived through you,
  in the name of the Holy Spirit, who was poured upon you.
May you dwell in peace this day;
  may your home be the eternity of God,
  with Mary, the empowering servant,
  with those who embrace the realm of peace
  and with all the angels and saints. Amen.

----------------------------------------------------------------

God who is above all,
  you have led us out of darkness into light,
  and have promised to your faithful people comfort in time of sorrow.
Grant to the dead, peace;
  to the bereaved, comfort;
  to the injured, healing;
  and to those who despair, hope;
that in our time of trial we may know the consolation of your love.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Be a bright flame before me, O God,
  a guiding star above me
Be a smooth path below me,
  a strong shepherd behind me
today, tonight, and for ever. Amen

---------------------------------------------------------------

Be with us, God of consolation,
when we are made weary by this world;
turn our sorrow into joy
and give us lips to sing your praise
and lives to proclaim your victory in Jesus Christ,
our crucified and risen Lord. Amen.
