Prayer For Death Of A Mother
Jesus, my Sustainer, I thank you for the unique gifts and abilities that you gave my mother. Throughout her life, she reflected your image in the love that she gave to others. May I be filled with joy from the memories I cherish. Throughout history, you have consoled your people as they mourn. Your people have been filled with hope due to your promise of eternal life. May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with me always. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
May you see God's light on the path ahead / When the road you walk is dark. / May you always hear, / Even in your hour of sorrow, / The gentle singing of the lark. / When times are hard may hardness / Never turn your heart to stone, / May you always remember / when the shadows fall, you do not walk alone.
O Lord, my God, you are my refuge and my strength, my ever-present help in times of trouble. I feel adrift in the storm of grief since the death of my mother. Thank you that you always hear the prayers of your people. Hear me today as I cry to you for help. Fill me with your strength, comfort me through your spirit and hold me close to you. May I find deep encouragement in your promise that my mother is with you in paradise. May I praise you in this difficult time. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Oh, only for so short a while you have loaned us to each other, because we take form in your act of drawing us, and we take life in your painting us, and we breathe in your singing us. But only for so short a while have you loaned us to each other
Precious Holy Spirit, thank you for your endless supply of mercy and grace. My mother's life came to an end with a hope that comes from trusting in your promises. May the sorrow that I feel be transformed into thanksgiving for her life and her love. As I deal with the pain of loss, may I be reminded that death has ultimately lost its sting because of the resurrection of Jesus. May grace, mercy, and peace be with me, from God the Father, and from Jesus Christ, the Son, in truth and love. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Compassionate Father, thank you that you remain the same yesterday, today and forever. As I mourn the loss of my mother, may I find reassurance that she now abides with you. As I experience this unexpected change, may I be strengthened in your unchanging love. You held my mother close and you continue to draw near to me. May my eyes be fixed on the cross, that my gaze would be fixed on the light of your glory through the darkness of this situation. In life and in death, you are Lord of all. To you alone belongs all glory and praise. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Creator and Sustainer, my God, thank you that you made the universe and all it contains. We are all made in your image and reflect your attributes. I praise you for the way that my mother demonstrated your love throughout her life. You have promised your children an inheritance of eternal life. I thank you that my mother is now safe in your presence. Fill me with your spirit in my time of need. Blessing and glory, wisdom and thanksgiving, honor, power and strength, be unto you my God forever and ever. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Have compassion in thy mercy, on the souls of my father and mother; forgive them their sins, and grant that I may see them in the joy of eternal brightness. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
