Good Tuesday morning it’s July 20, 2021, I pray all is well. In the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit Amen.
Prayer to the Holy Spirit
Heavenly King, Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, present in all things and filling all things, the treasury of blessings and Giver of life: come and abide in us. Cleanse us from all impurity and save our souls, gracious LORD.
This morning my dad called me to let me know my grandmother passed away earlier this morning. Today’s reflection is going to be a prayer of reflection for my grandmother who has now gone home to Yeshua (Jesus). For the last few days I have had this feeling that something was going to happen. It seems our Creator upstairs has been preparing me for the last three days which was this phone call. The pain I feel today is indeed real but both God and her would want me to keep on the right path. When life gets me down I turn to my Prayer Book for the answers and the comfort I need to continue about my day.
Prayers for the Dead
Christ our Lord, grant rest to Your servant Barbra Kester among Your Saints, where there is no pain, sorrow or suffering, but everlasting life.
With the righteous who have reposed in Your peace, grant rest, Savior, to the soul of Your servant Barbra Kester, and bestow upon her the blessed life which is from You, merciful Lord.
Lord remember Your servant Barbra Kester who has fallen asleep in the hope of the resurrection. Forgive her every transgression she has committed in thought, word or deed. Grant her peace and refreshment, the repose and the life of Your departed servant Barbra Kester, and to You I give glory, now and forever. Amen.
Prayer of Thanksgiving
Jesus Christ, my Lord and God, I give You thanks for Your loving kindness and all the blessings You have richly bestowed upon me. I fall down in worship and adoration before You, the King of glory. I praise You, I glorify You, I bless You and I give thanks to You for Your great goodness and tender mercy. To you I come, my sweet Lord and loving Master. Shine in my heart the light of Your grace. Enlighten my mind, that I may walk uprightly all my life by keeping Your commandments. Glorified and exalted is Your holy name, now and forever. Amen.
Tomorrow we will continue our Bible study but for the rest of this day is a time of silence for me. Everyone take care, be safe and have an outstanding day if you are feeling overwhelmed. The prayer of Thanksgiving works really well.

Closing The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
