PRAYER FOR WIDOWS

AND WIDOWERS

 

Lord, I pray for the aged who are widowed

and are alone for the first time in years;

please comfort them, be with them,

and dry their lonely tears.

 

Help them experience peace

in the days they have left to go;

please Lord, don’t allow them to

live their days in woe;

and for anyone faced with earthly parting,

whether they go first or last,

remind them that days on earth

always seem to go by too fast.

 

But in Heaven, time  is forever;

and in heaven they’ll meet once more;

one will knock on the doorpost

and the other will answer the door.

In Christ’s Holy name I pray.

 

Amen.
