A prayer about steps

We rejoice with all your beloved children

who took their first steps today;

may their families and friends

love, nurture, and protect them;

may we create a society

in which they are cared for well.

We remember all your beloved children

who took their final steps today;

may they already be received into your nearer presence

where pain is no more and all tears are wiped away;

may those who mourn receive comfort and support

as they walk this shadowed valley.

We pray in the name of your Beloved Child Jesus,

the itinerant preacher who proclaimed and lived your love.
