Merciful saviour, help me always to remember that I must die and give account to thee for my life and my ministry, in order that I may learn wisdom and not trifle away the time thou hast given me. Be thou to me a gracious judge.
I give thee thanks at every remembrance of those dear to our hearts who on earth trusted in thee and rejoiced in the hope of life everlasting. Spare us to them that lean upon us and spare those who are our daily prop and stay.
Uphold and strengthen us in the midst of death and danger. Refresh us, who are sinners deserving thy wrath, with the hope of eternal life and let the end of our lives be in peace. And bring us at last to thine heavenly place where is no shadow of evil, no night of pain, no grief of failure, no sadness of parting, and thy faithful dwell secure and free from care and see thee face to face; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Dobberstein Pg. 54)
