Prayer for a lapsed Christian at the hour of his death

by Linda (San Antonio, TX)

Dear Lord,

Please bring into our loved one’s heart the memories of being close to you, of trusting in you, and believing there is life after death. Keep our loved one close to your own heart and help him to believe in your abundant mercy and love and especially your forgiveness. Let him be ready to accept you at the hour of death and believe in your love for him. Do not let him perish and die in his unbelief and guilt. Surround him and his family with your never ending love, peace, and mercy. In Jesus’ name we pray and we believe!
