A Prayer for Those We Love

We entrust, to your love and care, those dear to us.

Almighty God, we entrust all who are dear to us to thy never-failing care and love, for this life and the life to come, knowing that thou art doing for them better things than we can desire or pray for; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Book of Common Prayer, 831

Spike was 99 years old when he died. “For those we love” was his favorite prayer and Spike had a very long list of loved ones. Every time I use this prayer I remember Spike and the lessons he taught me. ~Fr. Dan

Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning
