Dear Lord Jesus, You are the great and good Shepherd of the sheep, Who tends to each one of Your children with gentleness and love. Lord, we lift up all those who are facing death today, and ask that in Your love, You would carry them on Your shoulders as they make their way through the valley of the shadow of death.
May they fear no evil, knowing that You are with them to comfort them. You are there to carry them in Your arms and to soon take them to be with Yourself forever.
Take away all fear and dread of the unknown, and give them Your perfect peace in their heart as they rest in Your love.
We ask this in the name of Jesus,
