Prayers for Tsz Fok

 

God of hope,
we come to you in shock and grief and confusion of heart.
Help us to find peace in the knowledge
of your loving mercy to all your children,
and give us light to guide us out of our darkness
into the assurance of your love,
in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Merciful God,
hear the cries of our grief,
for you know the anguish of our hearts.
It is beyond our understanding
and more than we can bear.
Accept our prayer
that as Tsz has been torn from this world
so may he be received into your safe hands and secure love.
We pray that we may treasure the memory of his life more than the manner of his death.
For Christ’s sake. Amen.

God of love,
We thank you that Tsz is in your gentle and loving hands,
far from the cruelty, violence and pain of our world.
When the trouble was near,
we could not understand how you seemed to remain far away.
And yet it is to you we turn;
for in life and death
it is to you alone whom we can trust,
and yours alone is the love that holds us fast.
We find it hard to forgive the deed
that has brought us so much grief.
But we know that, if life is soured by bitterness,
an unforgiving spirit brings no peace.
Lord, save us and help us.
Strengthen in us the faith and hope that Tsz
is freed from the past with all its hurt,
and rests for ever in the calm security of your love,
in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

God of all mystery, whose ways are beyond understanding,
lead us, who grieve at this untimely death,
to a new and deeper faith in your love,
which brought your only Son Jesus
through death into resurrection life.
We make our prayer in Jesus’ name. Amen
