Prayers For A Child

A short collection of prayers that are suitable for the funeral of a child

God of all mystery, whose ways are beyond understanding,
lead us, who grieve at this untimely death,
to a new and deeper faith in your love,
which brought your only Son Jesus
through death into resurrection life.
We make our prayer in Jesus' name.

from whom human sadness is never hidden,
you know the burden of grief
that we feel at the loss of - - - - - - - - .
As we mourn his/her passing from this life,
comfort us with the knowledge
that - - - - - - - . now lives in your loving embrace.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Lord God,
ever caring and gentle
we commit to your love this little one,
quickened to life for so short a time.
Enfold him/her in eternal life.
We pray for his/her parents
who are saddened by the loss of their child.
Give them courage
and help them in their pain and grief.
May they all meet one day
in the joy and peace of your kingdom.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
You were a precious gift, our joy, our dreams.
You were a sparkle through the darkness;
Our hope for a brighter tomorrow.
You warmed our hearts, gave light to our minds, and beauty to our spirits.
We gave you our love, wrapped you in our care, caressed you with our smiles.
Now you are gone.
We grieve.
We miss you so much.
The loving memories of you will keep you forever close to us - - - in our hearts, our thoughts, our souls. . . .
