This is a prayer for Mary, whose days this time are ending, and whose pathway out of this world is slow and arduous and lonely. She is having trouble crossing the bar.
That the Lord will come and lift her soul to himself.
That she may see her way clear and not be afraid.
That those she has loved and who loved her will come back to collect her and bear her home.
That her soul will arrive in peace.
That everything unresolved may settle into peace within her, so she may be free indeed.
God speed, longtime friend and companion. Go well. Don't wait. Nothing is wasted. Nothing is lost.
Hold the way clear for her, beloved Lord, take her by the hand, into green pastures, beside still waters, may angels attend her.
May she be peaceful, may all be accomplished, may she be free.
