Prayer For Deceased Father
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.
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.
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.
Dear Father, I thank You for taking care of my father/mother during their life on Earth. I thank You for giving them the opportunity to bring me into this world and I likewise thank You for the opportunity to have this prayer. I rejoice over the life that he/she led while alive and for the good deeds he/she accomplished. Lord God, I thusly pray for the soul of my deceased mother/father and that You take care of him/her on his/her way to Your holy Kingdom. I thank you for listening to my prayers oh Lord, Amen.
God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.
Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for my family,
relatives and friends,
and for all the dead known to You alone.
In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever.
by whose mercy the faithful departed find rest,
send your holy Angel to watch over this grave.
Through Christ our Lord.
Holy Mary, pray for me.
Saint Joseph, pray for me.
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, assist me in my last agony.
O God, who hast commanded us to honor our father and our mother; in Thy mercy have pity on the soul of my father, and forgive his his trespasses; and make me to see him again in the joy of everlasting brightness. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
