Prayer For A Person Dying
O God, our heavenly Father, have pity on your children in great bodily weakness who are drawing near the gates of death. Send your dear Son to meet with them on the way, and to stay with them, for the day is now far spent, that he may comfort them with the Word of your goodness, and break with them the bread of eternal life; through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Almighty, eternal God, have compassion on the anxious sighs and groanings of this dying person. Receive them into your kingdom that you have mercifully prepared for them and all believers from the beginning of the world. Graciously release them, O Lord, and comfort them eternally with the elect; through your dear Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Almighty, eternal God, heavenly Father, comfort and strengthen this your servant and save them through your goodness. Deliver them from all anguish and distress, release them in your grace, and take them to yourself in your kingdom; through Jesus Christ your dear Son, our only Lord Savior, and Redeemer. Amen.
Gracious Father, your holy Word tells us that our times are in your hands. Hear our prayers for _____ and for their family as they near the end of their earthly life. Comfort them with your gracious promises of the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Lord Jesus, Come into my life. I believe you died and rose from the grave. I believe you live eternally in heaven. Cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Forgive me of all my sins. Move into my heart. I make you my Lord and Savior. Thank you for your sacrifice. I accept your gift of eternal salvation. Amen.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things that cannot change
Courage to change the things I can
And wisdom to know the difference.
Here, freed from pain, secure from misery, lies
A child, the darling of his parents' eyes:
A gentler Lamb ne'er sported on the plain,
A fairer flower will never bloom again:
Few were the days allotted to his breath;
Now let him sleep in peace his night of death.
Eternal rest, grant unto him (her) O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him (her).
May he (she) rest in peace (Amen) May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
