A Prayer for Comfort

Righteous Father and Friend,

Holy living and true. Thank you for your love and tender mercy. Your love is so great You gave Your good Son for us your rebellious children.

Have mercy Lord.

In our lives we are painfully aware of loss. Our hearts are broken when friends and family pass; however, nothing compares to the lose of those who leave too soon. When a parent loses their grasp on a child…

We the living are left to go on. Those who have not lost a child cannot share this loss. However, You do understand. Father please reach out your loving hand and touch us. Comfort us. Let those who are suffering feel your warm embrace.

Father, with only the meager faith a parent has we commit our children into your hands. Take care of them there is so little we can do. You are God, you can do great things with them.

May your grace be on those who have already laid down and gone asleep in your pasture. For the living, Father, have mercy on us. Give us comfort beside quiet waters, courage in the darkest valley, and faith to keep walking in your light.

For it is in Your child’s name we lay our prayer. Amen.
