Dear Father, we remember today our loved ones who have gone before from life. Through Jesus Christ, we have hope to see them again in Heaven.
And all those we have known or not known whose lives and faith and work have touched us, whether as kin or friend. For those whose prayers long ago helped our lives today. For those whose prayers and sacrifices today give hope to our futures. For those whom we are blessed to offer prayers for.
We cannot love them enough, but God can, and does, and will forever.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
In any readers would like to add your departed loved ones, please feel free to do so in the comments. No last names are needed, Jesus knows about whom you are speaking.
