10 December 2018
God our Father, Your power brings us to birth, Your providence 
Guides our lives, and by Your command we return to dust.
Lord, those who die still live in Your presence, their lives  

Change but do not end. I pray in hope for my family, relatives 
and friends, and for all the dead known to You alone.  Amen
