Prayer for Visiting a Cemetery
Lord, I have come on this pilgrimage of prayer to keep the flame of love alive within my heart. As I read their names upon the stone-marker, I rejoice because that name has been written for all ages in the Palm of Your Divine Hand. May the breath of creation that surrounds this grave - trees, grass and earth, birds and sun join me in prayer:
May the pilgrimage remind me of what I already know, that nothing dies rather life is only transformed into new life. Holy is this grave, holy is this earth that has held in gentle embrace the bodies of all who are buried in this cemetery. Lord, with reverence, I leave a wreath of worship at this grave, woven with love, adorned with memories and with my faith in the reality of that Earthen Easter morning when all the Holy Dead shall rise in the splendor of Your Glory, Until that day, Eternal Rest to ________________ and to all the Holy Dead. AMEN.
