Prayer for One Preparing to Cross Over [Near Death]

Napa flower 3 - 4.6.19

Dear God, Creator of us All,

I feel now ready for Your call.

I’ve tied up all my life’s loose strings

Told those I love how much they mean;

Thanked all those who’ve made the difference;

Given them barrels of hugs and kisses.

I thank You for this journey had

And for preparing me now to come on back.

It hasn’t been easy, this Earthly life

So much work, pain, loss and strife

But in all of that there’s been a mix

Of dreams delivered — happiness.

So as I prepare to return back

I bow my head and humbly ask

That You forgive me for my ways

For words said or unsaid, my errant days.

And if I don’t deserve to be forgiven,

Have mercy on me, for life’s hard livin’.

But I know that You already know all that,

So please ready my soul to come back,

I can’t think of another thing

That needs saying or doing — except to sing

Praises for all that You have done

For me and all those I love.

You have always been there for me,

So with all my soul I sing:

Thank You . . . Thank You for all of that . . .

Thank You . . . Thank You . . . for guiding me back.
