Following a Suicide
we come before you in sadness,
praying for the soul of our brother/sister N.,
who in darkness and confusion,
has taken his/her own life.
Place your loving arms around him/her,
that he/she may find healing, forgiveness and peace.
We pray, too, that you would comfort those who loved N.
and grieve his/her tragic death.
May they know the eternal God as their refuge,
their hiding place,
and their sure help in this time of trouble.
For you, Lord Jesus, suffered and died for us
and now live and reign with the Father,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
for ever and ever. Amen.
