God, the almighty Father, raised Christ his Son from the dead; with confidence we ask him to save his people, living and dead, as we pray.. .’’Lord, hear our prayer.”

  2. 2) For our brothers and sisters, our relatives, for all who were close to us and good to us in this life and have gone before us in  death; Lord, give them the reward of their goodness, we pray..
  3. 3) For all who have died in the hope of rising again; welcome them. Lord, into the light of your presence, we pray...
