Prayer for Crossing Over in Peace
In the name of God, the Glorious, the Most High!
Joyously I celebrate Thy Holy Name, knowing that in this mortal life I have found no greater love than Thy Love, no greater mercy than Thy Mercy, no greater kindness than the kindness of those endowed with Thy virtues, and no greater forgiveness than Thine, O Thou Who forgives and blesses us.
May we all be filled with joy and peace at the hour of our ascension, and may Thy Presence and Thy Holy Angels bring us serenity and tranquility as we open our eyes to a life greater and more bountiful than this one.
Bless Thou our departed loved ones with Thy forgiveness, grace, and mercy. Comfort the bereaved.
Help us to be close to You and keep our thoughts centered on service to You and Your servants entrusted to our care.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
