Prayer For Father Who Died
Holy Mary, pray for me.
Saint Joseph, pray for me.
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, assist me in my last agony.
Father of Life, I thank you for my father. He
was such a blessing to me while he was still with us. I still miss him so much. I thank you for what he left me as gifts of love and faith. I pray that he has enjoyed your embrace and that the relationship he and I have now might someday be renewed with you in heaven. Until then, I entrust him to your love and ask you to let him look out for me and to assist me to stay on the path to you.
O God, who hast commanded us to honor our father and our mother; in Thy mercy have pity on the soul of my father, and forgive his his trespasses; and make me to see him again in the joy of everlasting brightness. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Dear Father, I thank You for taking care of my father/mother during their life on Earth. I thank You for giving them the opportunity to bring me into this world and I likewise thank You for the opportunity to have this prayer. I rejoice over the life that he/she led while alive and for the good deeds he/she accomplished. Lord God, I thusly pray for the soul of my deceased mother/father and that You take care of him/her on his/her way to Your holy Kingdom. I thank you for listening to my prayers oh Lord, Amen.
Eternal Savior, I will not fear for You are with me! You are my God, Your Word declares that You will strengthen me and help me. Lord, You see my heart, mind and soul.

I pray that Your divine strength keeps me all the days of my life. I pray that Your Word surrounds me and resonates in my heart during this hard time. Lord, I love You, adore You, and need more of You right now. Amen.
Dear God, we wait for the time You come again. We magnify Your name because it is You who will change our lowly body to be like Your glorious body, by the power that enables You to subject all things to Yourself. Father, we thank You because we know that our father who has passed is with You in his glorious body in heaven. So, we thank You because we know that his death on earth is not the end of his life. Lord, we find comfort in knowing that we too will get the opportunity to be with You in heaven and reunite with our earthly father. Amen.
you know our hearts and share our sorrows.
We are hurt by our parting from those whom we loved:
when we are angry at the loss we have sustained,
when we long for words of comfort,
yet find them hard to hear,
turn our grief to truer living,
our affliction to firmer hope
in Jesus Christ our Lord.
you are attentive to the voice of our pleading.
Let us find in your Son
comfort in our sadness,
certainty in our doubt,
and courage to live through this hour.
Make our faith strong through Christ our Lord.
