Prayer For A Loss Of A Child
Oh Lord Jesus, come to my rescue. Surround me with your love as with a shield. I am broken because of the loss of our only beloved child. Jesus, I know that you understand my pain because you went through the same and even wept when Lazarus died. You know my pain and anguish, and that is why I have come to ask you to set me free from this pain. Remind me of your unconditional love that I may go through the pain and come out a victor. Whatever the enemy intended for my downfall, Lord, use it to lift me to places I never imagined. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray. Amen.
Lord, when life doesn't make sense, it is easy to turn to other things and people instead of you. Help me to focus on you alone as I mourn the loss of my child. I am trusting in you, O Lord. Please keep me in perfect peace during this grieving period. Help me to focus on things that are above where you belong. Deliver me from this pain that is becoming unbearable. You are my redeemer and my rock. Let my words be acceptable in your sight. In Jesus' holy name, I believe and pray. Amen.
Lord, you are the light of my salvation I will not fear. Even though I am going through a hard time, I put my trust in you. You are the stronghold of my life go before my family and I as we prepare to lay our child to rest. Let your steadfast love comfort my troubled heart. Help me to remember that I am more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray. Amen.
God in heaven, I don't want to live like this because it hurts to the core of my heart. Rescue me from this pain, set me free from the sorrow of death. I am in despair, help me to find hope in you. Remove guilt from my heart for the enemy keeps attacking my mind about the death of my child. Cover me with your glory and strengthen me to overcome the lies that the enemy is feeding my soul. Help my family and me to walk in your glorious light. In Jesus' all-knowing name, I pray. Amen.
Abba Father, We long to be with our dear beloved child, our hearts are heavy with deep sorrow and our breath is shallow. Please carry us, for we are overwhelmed by the pain of our grief. Words can not express the depth of our loss or the heartache we feel. We know you are with our dear beloved son (daughter), your heart is overjoyed by him. His breath is new life in Heaven. Please come and nurture our precious one. Thank you for the hope of eternal life that he has now received. Lord, you will keep him safe until we meet. We entrust him into your care now. Amen.
O Lord, I give you my worries and concerns and I ask for your guidance. You see it all, the outer circumstances, the inner turmoil. I know that you understand my life, that sometimes my heart weighs heavy with trouble. Right now I lay all these things before you. I breathe in, safe in the knowledge that I am held by grace. I breathe out, knowing that I am held secure in your arms. And I wait on you. For you are all truth, you are overflowing love, you are a beacon of hope and a fortress of faith. Lord, I choose to be attentive to your voice. May I be alert to your Spirit's guiding as I journey onwards with you. I love you Father. Amen.
Dear Father, Your Spirit carries the softness of eternity. You are the fragrance of comfort, you are the enfolding lullaby. Please encircle my dear friend in her grief. Cocoon her within your arms of love, whisper heavenly truth into her soul and keep each fragment of her broken heart safe. When we are in pieces your presence will keep us. So I lay her in your strong arms Jesus. Come carry her. Watch steadily over her day and night. May she come to know that her beloved child is safe with you. Not lost but found, known and cherished. Amen.
My heart is broken and my spirit mourns. All I know is that Your grace is sufficient. This day, this hour Moment by moment I choose to lean on You, For when I am at my weakest Your strength is strongest. I pour out my grief to You And praise You that on one glorious day When all suffering is extinguished and love has conquered We shall walk together again.
