Prayer For A Dad Who Passed Away

Lord, I mourn right now at the loss of the person I loved intensely my father. I thank You for blessing me with him. I thank You for giving me hope in this sad time. We were buried with You in baptism into death, so that just as You were raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in the newness of life. Thank you for allowing my father to live again in perfect peace in Your kingdom. I pray that this hope comforts my family and I during this difficult time. Amen.

Dear God, we wait for the time You come again. We magnify Your name because it is You who will change our lowly body to be like Your glorious body, by the power that enables You to subject all things to Yourself. Father, we thank You because we know that our father who has passed is with You in his glorious body in heaven. So, we thank You because we know that his death on earth is not the end of his life. Lord, we find comfort in knowing that we too will get the opportunity to be with You in heaven and reunite with our earthly father. Amen.

Eternal Savior, I will not fear for You are with me! You are my God, Your Word declares that You will strengthen me and help me. Lord, You see my heart, mind and soul. I ask that You strengthen each area of me as I struggle to stay strong after the passing of my father. Lord, please uphold me with Your glorious right hand! I pray that Your divine strength keeps me all the days of my life. I pray that Your Word surrounds me and resonates in my heart during this hard time. Lord, I love You, adore You, and need more of You right now. Amen.

Dear Lord, we are convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present or the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of You, which is in Christ Jesus. Lord, even though we have lost our father, we have not lost Your love and neither has he. So, we thank You for Your love, which surpasses all things. We bless You that Your love is our comfort as we mourn. Lord, we pray that Your love envelopes our family so that we do not become broken and bitter by the pain that we feel right now. In Jesus' almighty name. Amen.

Father, honestly, right now my heart is troubled. But Your Son tells me that in Your house are many rooms. If this weren't true, He would not have told us so. Nor would he have told us that He was going to prepare a place for us there. Your Son also said that He will return and take us with Him so that we can be where You are. Lord, I know that my father is with You in heaven. I thank You that a place was prepared for him there. Lord, I pray that the idea of my father living eternally with You brings peace to my heart. Amen.

God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.
Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for my family,
relatives and friends,
and for all the dead known to You alone.
In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever.

O God,
by whose mercy the faithful departed find rest,
send your holy Angel to watch over this grave.
Through Christ our Lord.

Holy Mary, pray for me.
Saint Joseph, pray for me.
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, assist me in my last agony.
