James P. McStay


James P. McStayA Funeral Director’s Prayer
Lord, give me the patience needed to serve everyone as my own;
the wisdom to understand other’s feelings;
the knowledge to learn as well as to instruct;
the kindness to treat everyone equally at all times;
the strength to endure long hours and hard work;
the desire to serve others as I would my own family;
the humility to accept words of thanks and praise;
the compassion to touch another’s soul;
the pride and the right to smile when I have served a family well;
and Lord, most importantly,
the right to shed an honest tear when my heart is touched;
Lord, make me thankful that
I am a Funeral Director.
