Prayer on Visiting a Graveyard

Lord God,

whose days are without end and whose mercies beyond counting

keep us mindful that life is short and the hour of death unknown.

Let your Spirit guide our days on earth in the ways of holiness and justice,

that we may serve you in union with the whole Church,

sure in faith, strong in hope, perfect in Love.

And when our earthly journey is ended,

lead us rejoicing into your kingdom

where you live forever and ever. Amen
