A prayer for my friends

A prayer from the Episcopal Church Prayer Book: - 

for my friend Sally C as she moves towards death, and for her husband Jim C and their daughters Ann and Mary.

Mary C is an especially beloved friend from my days at St. James's, Cambridge, MA

Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or
weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who
sleep. Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless
the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the
joyous; and all for your love's sake. Amen.
