Prayer For A Family Who Has Lost A Child
O Lord, I am so scared of facing the reality of what has just happened. I don't want to accept that our child is no more. Help me to be strong and courageous. Wipe away my tears and get me out of this pit of denial. Lord, may I get to know how much you love me in the midst of all that is happening. Please give me the strength to praise you even when it hurts and doesn't make sense. In Jesus' powerful name, I pray. Amen.
Dear Lord, my heart is broken because of the loss of my only child. He was my special gift from you. His death has left me very confused, but I thank you for the chance you gave me to be his mother. Please mend my heart and remove all the anguish and pain that has broken it. Lord Jesus, help me to walk in your love every single day as I come to terms with what has happened. Remind me that death has been defeated on the cross, and it has no sting over my family and me because to be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord. As we grieve, help me to remember that all is not lost. In Jesus' all-knowing name, I believe and pray. Amen.
Loving Father, grant me peace, for I am full of fear and anxiety. I rest in your warm embrace, for I know that you will never let me go.

Heal our broken hearts and bind our wounds. Remind us of your promises about heaven and eternity, for we know that our child is in your presence right now. Lord, help us to find a path of healing so that we can move on from our pain and continue serving you. In Jesus' holy name, I believe and pray. Amen.
Father God, You are my refuge and strength a present help in time of need. Lord, I need you right now. I don't know how to cope with the loss of my child.
