Today I pray for myself and others who have lost loved ones. Comfort me in the pain of my loss, remind me that You are always with me. Give me strength in my grief and heal my heart. Let me never lose the memories of those I have lost, but give me the peace I need to move forward in my life.
Comfort the families who have suffered loss too soon, those who have lost children. I cannot imagine their pain or their suffering, but Lord Your Son suffered on the cross and You know their pain. Hold them close Lord, give them peace in their pain. Help them to heal their hearts. Teach them that they can move forward in their lives without forgetting those they lost.
Comfort children who have lost their parents. Let them know that they have a father in You, a Father who will never leave them. Hold them tight in Your loving arms, wipe their tears, and heal them.
And Lord, I pray for the souls of the departed. I pray that they may spend eternity with You in Your glory.
