CONGREGATIONAL PRAYER

Faith­ful Redeemer, you are the begin­ning and end­ing of all things. You promise to wipe away every tear, that death and mourn­ing will be no more. You make your home among us, and abide with us as our God. Teach us to live as the saints you call us to be, that we may tru­ly be your peo­ple, liv­ing and doing your will, in the name of Jesus, who is the Christ. Remind us to imi­tate the best of those who have gone before us and who point­ed us toward faith in you. Amen.
