ICF Prayer Focus
Those who support us in dealing with death and bereavement
Redeeming God, you are the author of life and hold the keys to human destiny in Your hands. You promise through faith in Jesus Christ, life that is eternal, but death itís earthy doorway, remains painful to encounter. Be with all who walk through the valley of deathís shadow and accept our thanks for the many people who in different ways make that path easier to tread. Their dealings with others will so often be in the midst of sorrow and despair, so we pray that You will keep their spirits from being downcast; and in a society that prefers to hide death away, may we give their labours the value and recognition that are deserved. We ask this in the Name of the one who encountered and defeated death on our behalf and has gone before us to His eternal reign. AMEN
