Praying with Paul: 'Coming Reunion'

Saturday, July 23, 2022

1 Thessalonians 4:13-15

Dear Father, comforter of the bereaved,

On the death of our dear loved ones in Christ, may we comfort one another with thoughts of a glorious reunion.

Help us not grieve as those who have no hope. Since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, you will bring with you at your coming those who have fallen asleep.

We place our trust in you for ourselves, too, for we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, shall not precede those who have fallen asleep, but will share in their rapturous blessing.

In the name of our conquering and returning Savior. Amen.
