Prayer

Death and life

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

God is love (1 John 4:16; NIV).

I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5; NLT).

Lord,
At death, I’ll leave behind
My flesh and bones,

But my spirit will return
To you who gave it,

Merging with
Your oceanic love,

From which you brought me,
Long ago, to birth.
