Dear Father, I lie in the arms of your love, And pour out my anxious thoughts to you. Abba, I'm choosing to rest here in the warmth of your embrace. I give you the things I cannot face, the struggles, the trials and the fears. Father, I will let my tears fall on you, for I know you catch every one and will never let me go.
Lord, at the moment nothing seems to be able to help the loss I feel. My heart is broken and my spirit mourns. All I know is that Your grace is sufficient. This day, this hour Moment by moment I choose to lean on You, For when I am at my weakest Your strength is strongest. I pour out my grief to You And praise You that on one glorious day When all suffering is extinguished and love has conquered We shall walk together again.
O merciful Father, who hast taught us in thy holy Word that thou dost not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men: Look with pity upon the sorrows of thy servant for whom our prayers are offered. Remember him, O Lord, in mercy, nourish his soul with patience, comfort him with a sense of thy goodness, lift up thy countenance upon him, and give him peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Abba Father, I am yours, and you are mine. I know I am broken, please comfort me with your love. Gather up the little fragments of hope I have lost and keep them safe for me. Hold me close and tight, breathe into me your beauty through creation. Come whisper over me your words of reassurance and strength. I am yours, and you are mine. I know I am weak, please renew me with your restoration power. Come fill my heart and mind with the promise of eternity and bring me slowly back to life. Father, you are my rock, my hiding place, my shelter from the storm. In you I wait, in you I am safe. Amen.
Abba Father, You hold time within your hands, and see it all, from beginning to end. Please keep and carry these precious people in their sadness and loss. Cover them with your great wings of love, give their weary hearts rest and their minds sound sleep. Lord, lift their eyes so that they may catch a glimpse of eternity, and be comforted by the promise of heaven. We ask all this in the precious name of Jesus. Amen.
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.
