Prayers to Light Your Path: When you have to say a final good-bye

I’m going to hold onto your hand

for as long as I can –

Then I’m going to hold onto your spirit


I don’t believe in goodbyes, 

just love –

and a God with the power

to unite hearts

beyond time and space,

in a pure eternal connection.

Will you whisper secrets about heaven

into my heart

from the other side? 

Will you help me stay connected to God?

Have you walked with a loved one through the end of their life? Did you grow closer to God through the process? Comment below, and I’ll be delighted to keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Lord, give us the strength to endure times of sorrow, grief and loss. Help us to grow in faith through these times and take comfort in Your ultimate promise of eternal life for all those, who believe in You. Give us the grace to understand how our loved ones will continue to be present with us by the power of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
