Funeral Planning

a prayer

A prayer of the Northumbria community

Do not hurry as you walk with grief;

It does not help the journey.

Walk slowly, pausing often:

Do not hurry, as you walk with grief.

Be not disturbed

By memories that come unbidden.

Swiftly forgive;

And let Christ speak for you

Unspoken words; unfinished conversations

Will be resolved in him.

Be not disturbed.

Be gentle with the one who walks with grief.

If it is you, be gentle with yourself.

Swiftly forgive;

Walk slowly, pausing often.
