Prayer For Grief Death
Good Shepherd, I know that with You I lack nothing because Your word says so. I have suffered immense loss recently, but even so, Your word declares that with You I lack nothing. I am currently living in the harsh reality of grief right now, but I pray that I get to the place where I feel like I again lack nothing. I pray that I get to a place where I am healed from the pain and the grief and instead, I am filled with peace, Amen.
Awesome Shepherd, I know that with You, I shall not be in want because just like You lead the sheep to the green pastures and still waters, with me You will also lead me to a place of peace. Grief is a horrible thing to deal with, but I know that You will restore my soul, I know that I do not need to fear because Your rod and staff comfort me. I know that my cup overflows, surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in Your house forever, Amen.
God of Truth, honestly, I cry through the night and embrace mourning in the day. But Your word declares that weeping may remain for a night but rejoicing comes in the morning! I pray for this shift in my life, I pray for divine peace within my heart so that I can rejoice in the morning, even though I have lost, and I have grieved. I believe in Your word, and I know that even though it doesn't feel like it, I can achieve healing from this pain, Amen.
Heavenly Father, I look to You! One thing I ask of You is that I will dwell in Your house all the days of my life so that I may gaze upon Your beauty and seek You in Your temple. Lord, in the day of trouble You will keep me safe in Your dwelling; You will hide me in the shelter of Your tabernacle. Oh Lord, help me find my way to Your dwelling because the grief is overwhelming, Amen.
Draw me closer to You Lord and never let me go! I know that You are close to the broken-hearted and You save those who are crushed in spirit. With the loss that I have endured and the grief that I am in, I know that I am both broken-hearted and crushed. I pray that I feel Your presence even more in this season so that I know that I am not alone and that I do not need to remain in this state of sorrow, Amen.
Awesome God, even when calamity comes, the wicked are brought down, but even in death, the righteous have a refuge! I thank You for this word that gives me comfort in knowing that although I have lost one that I love, they have gained by entering Your heavenly kingdom. They have found a better place and are resting eternally in You, so I thank You. I pray that this word resonates within me so that I can move on from my grief, Amen.
O God, I come to You filled with hurt and sadness and even anger because of my great loss. Lord, I know that You have a plan for each of our lives, but I am in such pain and grief that it is hard to focus on the truth that You do care and that You have had to face deep grief and loss too. Lord, my hurt and pain runs deep and I feel that my heart is breaking. I ask you to touch my hurting heart.
I know, Lord, that You are the God of comfort and that You have been with me every step of the way. I ask You to draw ever closer to me at this time for I feel that my whole world has been shattered.
I find it hard when people who don't understand try to say words that they think are comforting but sometimes it makes the hurt even worse and I feel hurt and so very, very alone.
Lord, I know it is true that in time the pain will lessen but please be with me, hold me close and steady me, for I know that without You I could not face another day, another hour.
I keep thinking about that song we used to sing when I was younger, never a heartache, and never a groan, never a teardrop, and never a moan, ever a danger but there on the throne, moment by moment He thinks of His own.
Hold me Lord I pray, and keep me moment by moment,
Moment by moment I am kept in Your love,
Moment by moment I've life from above,
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine,
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine
Thank You Lord that You are my God,
Loving Father, I am finding it so hard to even get up out of bed to start the day, knowing that I have to face it alone and without the one I love so dearly. I know that without Your grace and sufficiency I could never get through the day, but I thank You that You have promised to be with me and to provide me with Your strength for today as well as bright hope for tomorrow.
I can't imagine tomorrow being anything but a day filled with pain, as I do not have my loved one beside me, but I ask that in Your grace You will give me the strength to get through today, step by step, knowing that You are there to carry me, even when my heart seems to fail from the grief and pain that I am going through.
Thank You. that You have promised to carry our pain and thank You that Your grace is sufficient for every eventuality in our lives. Give me the strength to cope with the loneliness I feel and help me to move forward in my life-plans, knowing that You are with me, to support and strengthen.
Give me hope for tomorrow, for my hope and my trust is in You, Lord. Hold me close I pray, and thank You for always being with me and the great comfort that I have in knowing You, as my own dear Saviour and friend.
