Prayer For Dad Passed Away

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Prayer in Suffering

O Lord, your sorrowing Mother stood by your cross; help us in our sorrows to share your sufferings.

Like the seed buried in the ground, you have produced the harvest of eternal life for us; make us always dead to sin and alive to God.

Shepherd of all, in death you remained hidden from the world; teach us to love our hidden spiritual life with you and the Father.

In your role as the new Adam, you went down among the dead to release all the just there since the beginning; grant that all who are dead in sin may hear your voice and rise to new life.

Son of the living God, you have allowed us through baptism to be buried with you; grant that we may also rise with you in baptism and walk in newness of life. Amen.

Lord, today is tinged with both sadness and a strange sort of comfort as we say farewell to my dear and precious father, who has been such a support to us all over the years.

Thank You for giving me my dad, and for all that he has meant to me throughout my life. As I think back over all the things that he taught me and for the many lessons of life that I have learned from him, it rejoices my heart, and yet Lord, I know that I am going to miss him so very much.

Be close to all of the family today Lord. I know that we are all going to feel his passing in different ways and I pray that You will draw close to each of us and provide the comfort and strength that we all need as we finally come to terms that we will no longer see him down here. But thank You that he knew the Lord Jesus as his Saviour, and we rejoice to know that he is now in the presence of the Saviour he loves. Thank You Jesus,


Heavenly Father, I miss my father who is in heaven. At this time, I call on You for strength at one of my weakest hours. You are my refuge and strength. You are always ready to help me in times of trouble. I call on You and Your mighty power to help me through my pain. I thank You Father, for the Life of my father who has gone on to be with You. Thank you for his time on earth and the impact he had on my life. I acknowledge You for such a precious gift and the impact he will forever have on my life. Amen.

Abba Father, May your love hold me together as I grieve for my own father. It is such a great loss to me, such a painful and empty place to be. Help me to entrust him to your Kingdom, may I have eternal vision that is full of promise. Please help me to remember good times with great thankfulness and hold each memory deep in my heart. You are my heavenly Father and you are his heavenly Father, and you love him as I love him. Help my heart to rest in this eternal love. Amen.

Dear Jesus,

Come wait here, come dwell here with me. I hide in your presence, and rest in the grief.

I lost so much when dad passed away, his comfortable arm around my shoulder, his generous love of me. Lord, stir up these wonderful memories and help me to soak in that warmth. And when I am chilled by his absence, please cover me with your love and surround me with your arms.

Fill up my dreams with the hope of Heaven, my mind with the promise of truth. Give me the vision to trust that my father is safe now with you. Lead me to new springs of life to enjoy, until I too come home Lord to you.


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.

Righteous One, Your Word says that those who mourn are blessed because they are comforted. How is this, my gracious God? I do not feel blessed or comforted right now. Lord, I am mourning. My father has died and I cannot bear the thought of this world without him. I pray that Your divine comfort reaches my heart and fills me with Your peace. Lord, I love and adore You. I believe Your Word, but I just don't feel Your comfort. I pray against the plans of the enemy to keep me in my sadness and mourning. I know that You are my God. I know that Your Word tells me that You are the God of every good thing. Convince my heart, oh Lord, that my joy is in You. Show me that my peace is in You. Have Your define way in me, Lord. This I pray. Amen.

Oh God, I am so brokenhearted without my father. I know that he is with You in heaven, but the loss hurts. I do not know how to find peace with this, so please help me. Your Word tells me that You are close to the brokenhearted. You Word tells me that You save those who are crushed in spirit. Lord, I pray that You make my spirit feel whole again. Wake me up from this bad dream. Give me peace. Help me to cope. I need to feel more of You in this painful period so that I do not remain brokenhearted or crushed. Fill the huge empty space I feel. Lord, I do not want this loss to break me, so Lord, strengthen me and let me feel the warmth of Your presence. Amen.
