Prayers of the Faithful

(Version 2: Fr. Eric’s funerals)

Priest: God, the Almighty Father, raised Christ His Son from the dead; with confidence we ask Him to save His people, living and dead.

Our brother (sister)__________ was given the promise of eternal life in baptism; Lord, give him/her communion with your saints forever.  All: Lord, hear our prayer.

N.__________ ate the bread of eternal life, the Body of Christ; raise him/her up, Lord, on the last day.  All: Lord, hear our prayer.

We pray for our brothers and sisters, our relatives, for all who were close to us and good to us; Lord, give them the reward of their goodness.  All: Lord, hear our prayer.

We pray for all who have died in the hope of rising again; welcome them, Lord, into the light of Your presence.  All: Lord, hear our prayer.

We pray for all who have gathered here to worship in faith; Lord, make us one in Your kingdom.  All: Lord, hear our prayer.

Priest:  Lord, hear our prayers for our dead brothers and sisters; forgive them their sins, and bring them to the fullness of Your salvation.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.  All: Amen.
