Prayers after Death
from the "Handbook of Prayers", Midwest Theological Forum
(The following prayers may be recited immediately after the person's death and may be repeated in the hours that follow)
Saints of God, come to her aid!
Come to meet her, angels of the Lord!

R. Receive her soul and present her to God, the Most High.

May Christ, who called you, take you to Himself;
May angels lead you to Abraham's side. R.

Give her eternal rest , O Lord,
and may your light shine on her for ever. R.

Let us pray. All powerful and merciful God, we commend to You Terri, Your servant.
In Your mercy and love, blot out the sins she has committed through human weakness.
In this world she has died: let her live with You for ever.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

R. Amen

V. Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord.

R. And let perpetual light shine upon her.

V. May she rest in peace.

R. Amen.

V. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

R. Amen.
