A Granddaughter's Prayer

Memorial Service, December 30, 2015
You are our creator. You are the author of life. Life is such a precious gift from you and our time here is so short.
We come together today to remember and celebrate a precious life you gave each one of us. Big Papa loved his family well. He was a man with great ambitions and big dreams. Thank you for the legacy he left us and the life lessons we will forever treasure in our heart.
Thank you for the hope you have given us through your son Jesus. You say this is not the end and that one day we will, who believe, forever spend eternity with you. Father be with us as we grieve the loss of a grandfather, dad, husband, uncle and friend. Comfort us in our pain and remind us to keep our eyes fixed on you--the author and perfector of our faith. In Romans, I echo Paul's words, for I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God's love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today and our worries about tomorrow, nor height or depth or anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ, Jesus our Lord.
Father, thank you for life. Thank you for your son that made a way for us. Thank you for my grandfather. I ask that you speak and move in each of our hearts in a way only you can do that will move us closer to you.
I love you in Jesus name. Amen
