Memorial Prayer


Source of Life,
Spirit of Compassion,
we give thanks,
from the fullness of our hearts,
for the life that we remember
in this gathering.
Let the meaning of her (his) life
live on in us.
May the light that s/he has given us
shine on in our own lives
and hearts and memories.
Help us to find the courage
and the faith
we need each day
to carry on.
Open a way of hope before us.
Mend our hearts and teach us
to be comforters
of one another.

Deborah Cooper
