Day of Reflection Prayer


A prayer for the end of the Day of Reflection for Covid

As the last candle flickers and fades,
as illumined doorsteps fade into the night,
as tears are wiped from our cheeks,
we do not forget those we love.

As neighbours close their doors,
as sleep beckons us on,
as we think of what tomorrow will bring,
we do not forget those we love.

God of each cherished memory,
God of the time we’ve shared,
God of life beyond this world,
bless those we remember and love.

God of eternity,
touch this broken world with your love,
bless all those we miss,
and remind us that death is not the end.
