For Prayers-Archdeacon DeHart

Received today via email

It is with the deepest regret that I have learned that yesterday, that is, Friday, February 26, 2010, Archdeacon DeHart passed through the gates of larger life.

For One Departed.

ALMIGHTY God, we remember this day before thee thy servant Josephy, Priest, and we pray thee that, having opened to him the gates of larger life, thou wilt receive him more and more into thy joyful service; that he may win, with thee and thy servants everywhere, the eternal victory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

REST + eternal grant unto him, and let light perpetual shine upon him. May his soul, + and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

For Those Who Mourn.

ALMIGHTY God, Father of mercies and giver of all comfort; Deal graciously, we pray thee, with all those who mourn, especially thy handmaid Edy and thy servants, the DeHart children, that, casting every care on thee, they may know the consolation of thy love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Rev. Canon John Hollister

Had some contact with him over the years. May he rest in peace and rise in glory. May God give comfort to all those, who loved him and care for him.

And so another good and faithful soldier of Christ goes to his rest. Let us offer prayers for the ascent of his soul.
In Christ,
