Oh Lord, thank you for the many years that you wanted me to live on this earth. I have fought a good fight, and now it’s time for me to come back home and be with you. Lord, I am happy because I’m coming to be in your presence where there is fullness of joy. Grant my family the strength to move on after I depart this earth. Remind them of your love and help them to know that to be away from my body means that I’m with you. May I walk in your ways up to the last minute on this earth. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.
