Here’s another sendoff blessing I received on Sunday.
We thank you, O God, for all your servants and witnesses of times past. Through their example, inspire us to act in Spirit and in truth. Give us the wisdom of Gandalf, the humility of Aragorn, the faithfulness of Samwise Gamgee and steadfast endurance of Frodo Baggins, the alacrity of Legolas Greenleaf and courageous strength of Gimli. Unite us in your fellowship with all the saints who have passed to glory in the Timeless Halls; in your mercy, give the hope of your salvation and the promise of eternal life to those of us who endure in Middle Earth. In your name we pray, Amen.
