(This was written at the request of a friend.  May she find them helpful.)

Ancient Lord,

Receive
my loved one who has passed beyond this world.  Guide him to a place of
honor in the Land of the Ancestors, so that he may find the peace he
deserves.  Grant him rest that he might prepare for the next great
adventure that waits him.

So mote it be.

Lady of Tears,

Grant
me comfort now as I mourn the passing of my loved one.  Let me remember
and cherish the love that we shared, the love that now fuels my sorrow.
 In my grief let my memories of him, his trials, and his triumphs burn
bright that I might give testimony to his life and deeds..  Let him
live forever in my heart, where age and infirmity cannot touch him.

So mote it be.

  1. Erin, I doubt that my local friend had Gary Means in mind when she asked me about such prayers. But I’m glad to know that my prayers have touched more than one friend at a time where such was needed.
