Lord God, we have been reminded several times this year                       
how short life is.  We remember the family and friends of                      
Eileen MacLean and Betty Cato and ask that You bring                           
healing and comfort to those who were closest to them and to                   
all touched by them.                                                           
                                                                               
We take comfort in Your promise to be with us through life                    
and death.  In the words of the Psalms:                                        
                                                                               
`If I go up to the heavens, You are there; if I make                         
my bed in the depths, You are there.  If I rise on the                         
wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the                          
sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right                            
hand will hold me fast.'

This day, O Lord, we seek not only Your presence, but
