Creator of all that is seen and unseen, You stretched out the universe before us and called us to journey beyond the horizon of this moment.
Give us grace to remember what lies behind us: the men and women of good will whom we have been blessed to know, the precious faces of friends and family who taught us faith and fidelity, and those times when laughter lightened the load.
Refresh us often through the gift of memory that we may be steadied, assured and strengthened by the past.
Then call us from where we were to where You need us. Give us confidence to walk whatever path lies before us, knowing that as You touched us in the past, so You are in the future already reaching out to receive us in a love that will not let us go. Amen.
