Ritual for Person in Coma, Near Death

Our God and God of our ancestors
all now is in Your hands.
Forgive and release any hurts or wrong doings.
Lift up all fears.
Wash them away.

Let goodness flow over us and surround us now.
Help us ready for this next passage.

May all worries be eased.
Walk alongside of us and be with us
for our souls are intertwined.

Come close to us.
Bathe us in Your light.
Love us and carry us.
Shelter us under Your wings.

Ready a place in Your garden for the one we love.
Into Your hand we trust her/his soul.
Gently, lovingly tend him/her.

May God bless you and watch over you.
May God's Presence shine upon you and shed grace all around you.
May God garb you in light and bestow peace upon you.

Shema Yisrael Adonai Eloheinu Adonai Ehad.
Adonai Hu Ha-Elohim.

May Your angels come to our sides.
On our right, Michael, carry our prayers.
On our left, Gavriel, protect us.
Before us, Uriel, light our way.
Behind us, Raphael, heal all hurts.
And over us and all around us,
Shechina, shelter us within your wings.
Amen.
