Funeral Service for Thomas Downie

Please remember in prayer the family and friends of the late Thomas Downie whose funeral service will take place on Wednesday 1st May at 9.30am within Bellshill Central Parish Church of Scotland at 346 Main Street,  Bellshill, ML4 1BA.

God of love and mercy, embrace all those whose hearts today overflow with grief, unanswered questions and such a sense of loss. Grant them space to express their tears. Hold them close through the coming days.


Jesus, You said, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted” I am mourning; send me Your comfort now. Wrap around Your arms around me and hold me tight. Send angels of mercy to me. Shower Your comfort on me through those around me, and keep far from me those whose words and actions are no comfort.

After the clouds, the sunshine; after the winter, the spring; after the shower, the rainbow; for life is a changeable thing. After the night, the morning, bidding all darkness cease, after life’s cares and sorrows, the comfort and sweetness of peace. – Helen Steiner Rice
