Prayers needed for Joshua's family

Fr. Scott asks our prayers for Joshua, the grandson of a parishioner. Joshua was killed by a driver who had been drinking. The accident happened about 5 p.m. today, Sunday 24 May.

Please pray for Joshua's family.

Let us pray:
    O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered: Accept our prayers on behalf of thy servant Joshua, and grant him an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of thy saints; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, on God, now and for ever. Amen.
    Almighty God, Father of mercies and giver of comfort: Deal graciously, we pray thee, with Joshuah's family, and all those who mourn, that casting every care on thee, they may know the consolation of thy love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Eternal Rest grant unto him, O Lord,
And light perpetual shine upon him.
May his soul, and the souls of all the departed
though the mercies of God, rest in peace
