I have been writing these prayers after confronting conversations with friends who are counsellors and hospital chaplains. There are already people who cannot be present with their loved ones who are dying.
Lover of all, Who watches through the night,
draw close to those who are dying,
and to those who mourn.
Calm our terror of abandonment.
Let us hold faith with one another
that love reaches beyond death.
God who weeps,
comfort those who are dying
may they die without fear.
And while they are yet living
give us courage to tell our love and trust in yours.
