Sorry I have been absent from my site for so long,
had to have a time to calm my mind and thoughts
before starting up again. I realize that All Soul's Day
was yesterday, however, it's not to late to take the time
to remember those who went before us.
This prayer and one other, will also be added to start
Soul Conversations 100ThousandPoetsForChange event following this
And so it begins.....
Prayer For All Soul's Day
(Based on Psalm 23:3)
We come together on this day to remember
the loved ones of ours You called home.
We do not come together to mourn their passing,
But to rejoice in celebration, their new life with You.
In bringing them home, you renewed their spirits,
You healed what ailed their bodies,
You freed them from their fractured emotions
and gave them a life of renewal
in their spirits,
in their bodies,
in their souls.
Thank you Lord Jesus for their renewed life in You,
Thank you for taking them into your care,
Thank you for renewing their spirits.
We ask only that you bring to our minds the joys
we had with them, the lessons they taught us and
the legacy that they left for us to carry on.
