“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” – Matthew 5:4
Bless those who mourn, eternal God,
with the comfort of your love
that they may face each new day with hope
and the certainty that nothing can destroy
the good that has been given.
May their memories become joyful,
their days enriched with friendship,
and their lives encircled by your love.
Amen.– Vienna Cobb Anderson, adapted from “Prayers of Our Hearts”
