For Esperanza, Day 9

Out of the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice. Let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication. If Thou, O Lord, shalt observe iniquities; Lord, who shall endure it? For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness: and by reason of Thy law, I have waited for Thee, O Lord. My soul hath relied on His word; my soul hath hoped in the Lord. From the morning watch even until night, let Israel hope in the Lord. Because with the Lord there is mercy, and with Him plentiful redemption. And He shall redeem Israel from all her iniquities.

Eternal rest give unto Esperanza , O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.

Let us pray. O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all the faithful, grant to the soul of Esperanza Thy servant departed the remission of all her sins, that through our pious supplication she may obtain that pardon which she has always desired; who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.

Almighty Father, eternal God, hear our prayers for Your daughter Esperanza whom You have called from this life to Yourself. Grant her light, happiness, and peace. Let her pass in safety through the gates of death, and live forever with all Your saints in the light You promised to Abraham and to all his descendants in faith. Guard her from all harm and on that great day of resurrection and reward raise her up with all Your saints. Pardon her sins and give her eternal life in Your kingdom. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
