(an acrostic prayer for a friend)
Coming to You, O God, our Father, we acknowledge our sorrow and seek Your comfort today.
Attune Your ear to us, and visit us with Your tender mercies and overflowing grace, Father.
Remove the grief from our hearts as we worship You and celebrate the life of our dear friend, Carol Frey.
Open the inmost recesses of our beings and flood Your presence into our lives today, Father.
Lead us in paths of Your righteousness, for Your name’s sake, along streams of peaceful waters in green valleys as we abide in You today, our Father.
Forgive our selfish ways, O God, and cleanse us as we seek forgiveness of our sins today.
Return the joy of our salvation even as we tread in the valley of the shadow of death, dear Lord.
Enliven our spirits by Your Holy Spirit, Father, that we may walk, by faith, the path You have for each of us.
Yours is the kingdom, and the power and the glory, our Father.
In the name of Jesus our Savior, Comforter and Redeemer, we pray! Amen
