Prayer for Spouse Caring for Spouse in Hospice

Clouds and water with blue sky (2)

My Dear, Loving God,

As I stand before You now, I humbly ask for strength.

My loved one is in hospice.

This You know already.

I know not why (s)he is being prepared to return to You at this stage in our lives;

And I will not question why.

What I ask simply is this: That You fill me with the grace I need to accept Your plan.

For I love this (wo)man with all my heart and soul.

Though we have had ____(#) years together,

You know I was hoping for more.

Just as I refrained from asking why,

I too refrain from asking for more time.

What I do ask, however, My Dear Lord, is that You fill my loved one with everything (s)he needs to complete this journey without suffering,

With peace of heart and soul,

With the wisdom to know that his/her life has been the greatest gift You’ve ever given me.

The gift of a love with infinite levels of meaning for me,

And everyone whose lives (s)he’s touched.

Though I have already told him/her this,

I ask that You please continue this message of blessed assurance

For blessed assurance is what I need for him/her to have today and every day as (s)he prepares to go home.

Dearest Lord, for hearing my prayer always,

I thank you.

For answering them in Your own magical way,

I thank you.

With a loving heart standing here before You,

My Ever-living, Ever-loving God,

I thank you.

With my angels and those of my spouse, we all thank you,

And together we say: Amen.
