Prayer for Cemetery Visits:

Heavenly Father, have mercy on all our faithful departed.

In particular, we pray for our love ones.

Bring them into your kingdom of light and peace

and let them share eternal joy with you and with your saints forever.

We ask this through Chrsist our Lord. Amen

Eternal Rest:

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,

and let perpetual light shine upon them.

May the souls of the faithful departed,

through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Psalm 23: The Divine Shepherd:

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures;

he leads me beside still waters;

he restores my soul.

He leads me in right paths 

for his name's sake.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley,

I fear no evil;

for you are with me;

your rod and your staff

they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me

in the presence of my enemies;

you anoint my head with oil;

my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me

all the days of my life,

and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord

my whole life long. Amen.
