Everlasting God, our maker and redeemer,
grant us, with all the faithful departed,
the sure benefits of thy Son’s saving passion
      and glorious resurrection,
that, in the last day,
when thou dost gather up all things in Christ,
we may with them enjoy the fullness of thy promises;
through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord,
who liveth and reigneth with thee,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever

  7 Responses to “Prayer & Praise”

  1. I love these prayers!

  2. CK,

    These are collects from the Book of Common Prayer.

    I think you would like the whole book.. 🙂

  3. I attended my co-workers 18 year old son’s funeral Friday afternoon. There were over 500 people there, but I got into the receiving line on time to pay my respects. In just said “brother” and hugged him.

    His daughter I don’t think remembered me, but the 13 year old son may have. I didn’t look at me but threw out his arm for a hug.

    Ahead of me on line was a kid who totally broke down, so my friend did also. I saw and discussed this with another friend this past year when we were basically conducting a wake watching over his brain dead mother’s she’ll. He was OK until someone whom he hadn’t seen in years came into the room and started crying. Cue tear fest. It sucks to have to share another’s pain when you are the primary one dealing with it.

    I stayed for the mass. Though my protestant mind numbed when the 12 Hail Marys were recited (3×3 times), I stayed because it was the right thing to do.

    Though I’ve known him since 1992, we aren’t close friends, but close enough through our work. I (and my kids) continue to pray for him and his family. His eulogy… he was like a rock. No one of us parents ever wants to be there. I pray for him, but mostly the young siblings that they not lose the faith. I can’t imagine how devastating that is.

  4. remember in prayer

    New Victor – A friend at work lost his eldest son over the weekend in a head-on collision

    Linnea – another friend, whose adopted son committed suicide a month ago, has asked for prayer for two other of his adopted siblings: Jon and Sarah. Please pray that they would know God’s love and would follow Him out of horrible lifestyles to freedom.

    Linnea- John’s wife who is recovering from lung cancer surgery

    Dan from GA- Sad note: wife and I had to say goodbye, for now, to our dearly loved and loveable and insanely cute dog Sophie a few days ago. She was 15yrs old and getting ill alot. I know today that somewhere someone far greater than wife and I is caring for her needs.

    filbertz – the week from hell continues: one of my freshman students killed himself this morning. Devastated.

    filbertz – One of my students was evidently struck by a car at her bus stop this morning and died. Our school is shocked and grieving deeply. Prayers for her family–she was an only child and was thirteen years old

    London- my mom who is two years out from surgery for pancreatic cancer and a week and a half out from back surgery for three fractures in her spine.
    Caretaking is hard work at times and it seems that I lose track of time pretty easily

    the new Victor – pray for God’s protection and mercy upon my children, who’ve been through a lot, including witnessing domestic violence in the other home, and that I am strong and engaged enough to lead them so they don’t turn out like the sons of Eli. Yes, I always go worst case. I thank and praise God for that which I have been given to steward, especially my lambs.

    Bob Sweat – we are asking God to open a door to a small church somewhere in the US who want a pastor to love them and faithfully teach the Word. I have recently applied to churches in Idaho and Montana.

    Duane – best friend, Jim, died of a heart attack at the age of 62 – leaving a wife and three children. I’m heartbroken. Please pray for his family.
    My wife’s best friend, Norma, is in Santa Rosa. Her house is burning as I write. Please pray for her.

    prodinov –son, 5 having nightmares, I am still processing these dark attacks since they are unlike anything I have experienced. Prayers guys…it is unfair for a 5 yr old to be attacked….
