Prayer of Commendation

“Into your hands, Father of mercies,we commend our loved one, in the sure and certain hope that, together with all who have died in Christ, they will rise with him on the last day. We give you thanks for the blessings which you have bestowed upon them in their life:they are signs to us of your goodnessand of our fellowship with the saints in Christ.

Merciful Lord, turn toward us and listen to our prayers: open the gates of paradise to your servant and help us who remainto comfort one another with assurances of faith, until we all meet in Christ and are with you and with our loved one for ever. Amen.”
