Prayer For A Loved One Who Passed
As far as I remember, my brother/sister has been with me through all the ups and downs of life. We ate and played together, gave advice to each other and kept no secret from one another. Now, seeing as he/she is gone, I pray that he/she finds everlasting life and eternal happiness in Your powerful embrace. I pray You watch over his/her wife/husband/children/investments on Earth and let Your gaze shift not oh Lord. I thank You for this prayer session and in Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
Compassionate and loving Father, thank you that I am never alone, your presence calms the troubled sea of my life and speaks peace to my soul. Your word says that my faith will never be put to shame when my trust is in you. Hear my prayer as I ask for comfort in dealing with the loss of my loved one. Help me to find strength and peace in your presence. Restore joy to my soul. Lord, bless me and keep me, make your face shine upon me. Turn your face towards me and give me peace. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Lord God above, we, Your humble children kneel before you today in reverence. We know You're the greatest and You're the king of all kings. So, we pray You uplift our heart and soul so that we may cast away our sorrows oh Lord. Give us the strength to surpass this situation. No one dies without Your say-so and thus, we rejoice over this triumph and we pray You be with our deceased brother/sister. We thank you for the answered prayer and in Jesus name, Amen.
We thank You Lord for the passing of our brother/sister. We exalt Your name for the good life he/she lived. We pray oh Lord, that everlasting life be given unto him or her. And as he or she abides in Your garden, let Your angels touch what he/she cannot touch again. Father, be with his/her soul and may he/she rest in perfect eternal peace. Amen
Thank You for Your Word that gives comfort. Our loved ones' hearts are broken today. They are crushed with the disappointment of losing their beloved. You have said that You are close to the broken-hearted and that You save those who are crushed in spirit. May Your presence and help be very present in their time of need, felt tangibly by each one.
There is little that we can say or do to ease their pain, so we are coming to You. We know You do not numb their pain, for their grief is real and an essential part of processing great loss. Yet, we boldly ask that as they walk through the valley of the shadow of death, that they would sense that they are not walking alone. You are walking with them as You promised, so they have nothing to fear.
I pray that fear would not take root in their grieving. Instead, we ask that the peace of Heaven would flood their souls. Give them images of their beloved resting in Your arms. And help them to see that they can rest there too, for You care deeply for them.
Thank You that You treasure each tear they shed. Your Word tells us that tears are precious to You and that You catch each one that falls. May those who are grieving rest assured that You are doing that now in a very real way.
You have promised to work all things out for good for those who love You and take up Your calling upon their lives. We trust that You will work this sad loss out for good. Somehow in Your amazing wisdom and compassion, You will allow great things to come of this tragedy. We don't know how or when, but we are taking You at Your word, for we know You do not lie or stretch the truth. We can count on every word You have uttered each word is wholly dependable and true.
Jesus came to love the world, not to condemn. May His love flood each soul. May any regrets be washed away and only happy memories abide with them. Draw the family together in close unity as they help each other and talk with each other about their grief. Remind them that this is not all there is; that there is an eternity that they can enjoy together once again, so much better than this, if we simply believe the love You have for us.
We entrust the spirit of this loved one to You. You are good. We know this to be true. May Your name be appreciated, exalted, and praised even in the midst of sorrow and suffering.
In Jesus' Name
Father, grant me gospel joy; help me to rejoice in Christ even as I grieve. Envelope me with the peace and comfort only you can provide. As the days move into months, may this burden lessen. As the months move to years, use me to encourage and bless someone else who must walk a similar path. Help me to point them to you as the God of all comfort. I know that you are always with me and that your love never ceases. Help me to find refuge in you and nowhere else.
Jesus, my pain is so deep. My anger is fierce, my fear is crippling. And then in the midst of all of these emotions, numbness sets in. I struggle to know how to pray or where to begin! So I'm going to remind myself of truth. I know you are here with me in my grief. I know you are mending the brokenness in ways I can't always see. Lord, hold me in your arms, take this pain and help me bear it. In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen.
Today Father, as I grieve for the loss of my friend, I find comfort in the fact that You too grieve for him. You have watched soul after soul after soul fall prey to the enemy's lies.
Thank You, Lord, for opening my ears to Your words, my eyes to Your truths and my heart to Your message. Thank You for allowing me to understand what truly awaits the ones who choose not to come. Thank You for the ones who sought me out to share the glorious news of eternal life through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
Father forgive us for being selfish with Your message of hope. Open our eyes to see the people of this world through Your eyes, so that we would move with urgency, carrying Your Banner of Hope, until the whole world hears. We ask these things in the Sweet Name of Jesus, Amen.
