O Lord, our God! You give life to us human beings and then you take it back again. For a while you hide it in the secret of death, to bring it back renewed and purified in eternal life. Look at us and hear our prayer! Let our shock, our fear, and our grief be gathered up in your peace. Gather all our thoughts up in understanding the good you will for us. Teach us to consider that we must die and until we do, let us be thankful for the hope that does not come to shame and will never disappoint us. All of this we ask you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.— a prayer written by Swiss pastor, Karl Barth.
