A GOOD PLACE TO PRAY
The soul is never unaccompanied
When you stand humbly at the gravesite of your loved one, imagine their face in a spiritual form. Open yourself to their very being. Let your soul bond
with the soul of the righteous one who lies there.
Pray with specific prayers that come from your heart. Make bold prayers and difficult requests. This is where your prayers are most potent. Their final resting place is where eternal souls like to visit when you come there.
Lay down your stones and flowers upon their markers.
As you walk away, visualize their journey. Your loved one is holding tight to your precious prayers in safekeeping. Together they rise upwards to
the heavens and meet with God.
Return to your mortal life with peace and satisfaction. Their world above and our world on earth have been blessed with new hope, enriched by the placement of your prayers.
You helped the angels today.
