For those we love

Travis and I love liturgy and written prayers. Liturgies give us words when words fail. I love that these words are passed down through the years and spoken by the church over and over again.

The last few days have been particularly hard and sad as I am away from my family during a trying time. This prayer in The Book of Common Prayer spoke some peace and hope to my soul tonight.

Almighty God, we entrust all who are dear to us to thy never-failing care and love, for this life and the life to come, knowing that thou art doing for them better things than we can desire or pray for; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
