Prayer for a Happy Death
God our Father, You made us in Your image and handed over Your Son to die for us; grant us the grace to remain watchful in prayer, so we will be free from sin when we leave this world, and find eternal rest and joy in the depths of Your mercy. We ask this through Christ our Lord. AMEN.
