For a Stillborn Child
you teach us that nothing you have made
is without value and meaning,
and that all you have created share in your love.
Be a Father to our little one
who has already had a place in our hearts.
We now entrust our baby [whom we name N.]
into your care.
We who remain on this earth,
now ask you to pour your love into our hearts,
to heal the pain of our grief,
to strengthen our faith in your goodness,
and to help us support one another.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
