Prayer For The Soul Of The Departed Loved Ones

Almighty God, we pray for [name] whom we hold in our love, that You would give peaceful rest in heaven. Refine him/her as silver is refined of all impurities through Your goodness and mercy and find him/her worthy of entering into the place You have prepared. We thank You that when we leave this earthly body that we have an eternal body that You have made for us. Amen.

Most gracious God, we humbly intercede for our most beloved [name], who has died in true faith in You, after living a life of humility and service for You. We know that even his good works would not save him from doom if Your mercy was laid aside. Please give [name] rest from his labors and shelter his soul in the shadow of Your wings. We thank You that the last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

O God, King of all Kings, by Your infinite mercies, bring our beloved [name], who has died in faith in You, to rejoice before You. We know that Jesus our Redeemer lives and intercedes for us, and we stand confidently in the sure and certain hope of resurrection to eternal life. We ask You to grant to him/her Your mercy and everlasting peace. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Almighty God, who by the love which you have for men, have willed to take our humanity to live a life of hard work, to suffer a most cruel passion, and finally to die on the cross, I beseech you, by the infinite merits purchased for us with your precious blood, look mercifully on the suffering which is endured by the holy souls in purgatory. Accept, merciful God, the prayers which I offer for them, and call them to the glory of heaven

Father, 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. Amen.

Most Merciful Father, grant the soul of our loved one, [name], mercy. He/She has departed from this world. Please forgive him/her of his/her trespasses and usher him/her into your presence. May your faithful servant find refreshment, peace, and joy before you, O Lord. In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.

God of Enduring Faithfulness, I come before you today on behalf of those families that have lost their loved ones. Lord, they are in so much pain, and some are very bitter because of the loss. Others are living in denial; they do not want to accept that their loved ones are dead. Lord, heal their hearts and grant them peace. Please give them the courage to accept what has happened and help them to find hope in you. Help those that are bitter to let go and accept your comfort. May they mourn knowing that their loved ones are with you. Assure them that this separation is just for a season if they choose to walk in your ways. In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.

Gracious Father, thank you for the times and seasons you gave us with our loved one, [name]. He was a great person who devoted his/her life to you. Our beloved died knowing that he/she was coming back to you. Father, we also know and believe that to be absent from the body is to be present with you; that is why we come before you with hopeful hearts knowing that our dearly beloved will see your glory. Thank you, Father, for loving [name] and seeing it fit to take him/her home in this season. In Jesus' name, we pray, Amen.
