Prayer for a deceased friend


#1

My dear friend, Lynn, passed from this world Jan 23rd 2008
her birthday was October 3rd (tomorrow as i post this)

she had two requests:

  1. pray for her family, especially her Husband
  2. get your colon screenings done.

if she had had a colon screening done when she first noticed something wrong… she Might still be with us.

Lynn was a dear friend, a great example, she truly was a light unto the darkness… and she was my sponsor into the Catholic Church, although she died before i finished RCIA…
Her favorite prayer was the Rosary.

I ask that people please pray for the repose of her soul.

Blessings,
Judi

Hail Mary, full of Grace, The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the Fruit Of Thy Womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

God bless you for your faithful love and prayer for your friend Lynn.

Heavenly Father, I say ‘amen’ to Lynn’s prayers for her husband and for all her loved ones.

And yes, my stepmother need not have died, for the same reason.
Father please remind us to listen to what our bodies, and our understanding of healthy living and diet, tell us about our needs. Remind us also to watch out for any psychological pressures that mey undermine our health and well-being.

Eternal rest grant unto Lynn, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen. Heavenly Father, have mercy on Lynn’s soul and bring her to Paradise with St. Michael and her guardian angel to escort her. Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayer. Amen.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
Amen.

For her family…

O Lord, God of goodness and mercy,
Who in the midst of an evil and sinful world
hast presented to the society of the redeemed
the Holy Family of Nazareth
as a spotless mirror of piety, justice and love,
behold how the family is being undermined on all sides,
every effort being made to desecrate it
by stripping it of faith, religion and morals.

Regard the work of Thy own hands.
Safeguard in our homes the domestic virtues,
for these alone will ensure us harmony and peace.

Come and stir up the champions of the family.
Bestir the modern apostles so that in Thy Name,
bearing the message of Jesus Christ
and exhibiting holiness of life,
they may revive the doctrines of conjugal fidelity for married couples,
the exercise of authority by parents,
obedience on the part of children
and modesty on the part of girls.
Grant also through the efforts of these apostles,
that the home favoured by Thee with many blessings
may again become an object of esteem and love
in the minds and hearts of all.

It is through the examples of the Divine model of Nazareth
that the Christian family is to be restored in Jesus Christ
and to recover its former respect and dignity.
Then every home will again become a sanctuary
and in every household will be rekindled the flame of faith
to teach patience in adversity
and moderation in prosperity
and to promote order, peace and harmony in all things.

Under Thy paternal gaze, O Lord,
and with confidence in Thy Providence
and in the loving patronage of Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
the family will become a sanctuary of virtue
and a school of wisdom.
It shall prove, as Christ has promised,
a haven of rest against life’s burdens.
In the sight of the world it shall render glory to Thee, O Father,
and to Thy Son, Jesus, until the day when,
through Him, we shall, together with all His members,
sing the Divine praises in the eternal ages to come.

Amen.
