Prayer For Grieving Parents
Oh Lord Jesus, come to my rescue. Surround me with your love as with a shield. I am broken because of the loss of our only beloved child. Jesus, I know that you understand my pain because you went through the same and even wept when Lazarus died. You know my pain and anguish, and that is why I have come to ask you to set me free from this pain. Remind me of your unconditional love that I may go through the pain and come out a victor. Whatever the enemy intended for my downfall, Lord, use it to lift me to places I never imagined. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray. Amen.
God, sometimes it is so hard to not be discouraged when life seems to be shattered. The hurt and pain that comes from losing a child is unbearable some days. Although I know my friend's heart will never fully be healed from the loss of his/her baby, will you please give them an extra dose of strength today? Will you remind them that they don't have to fear the future because you are right by their side? Thank you for the way you help us and strengthen us during our heartache.
Lord, when life doesn't make sense, it is easy to turn to other things and people instead of you. Help me to focus on you alone as I mourn the loss of my child. I am trusting in you, O Lord. Please keep me in perfect peace during this grieving period. Help me to focus on things that are above where you belong. Deliver me from this pain that is becoming unbearable. You are my redeemer and my rock. Let my words be acceptable in your sight. In Jesus' holy name, I believe and pray. Amen.
God, we pray that you will draw near to these parents who are grieving the loss of their baby. Thank you that you are close to them during this time and that you will never abandon them even during the toughest and most tearful days. When they have days where they feel numb and unsure, please lift them up with your strength.
Lord, visit us today and give us faith to believe that our child who served faithfully is in your presence, and we will see him again. Remove anger and bitterness from our hearts and help us to accept the demise of our beloved child. Take away the pain and fill our hearts with your light. Help us to walk in love and fill us with joy everlasting. Lord, turn my mourning into dancing by reminding us about eternity. Let hope fill our hearts that we may look forward to seeing our loved ones again. In Jesus' holy name, we believe and pray. Amen.
God, I pray that during the quiet and still moments where our mind is racing and our heart is hurting, that you would help us to feel at peace. I pray for the family of this baby who is grieving, that they would find quiet, peaceful, and comforting moments. We are weary and tired, God. We longed to get to meet this baby and see him/her grow up but now we won't be able to. Help us to not become bitter or hard-hearted but to rely on you for strength and healing.
Father, I'm in a dark place, and I don't know how to get out of it. The loss of my child has left me hopeless and helpless. My spirit is crushed, and I don't know where to go from here. Lord, I am holding onto you, fill my heart with unbreakable joy. Help me to release all the anger that is in my heart and show me how to help my family cope with the loss. In Jesus' loving name, I believe and pray. Amen.
Oh Lord, you know every tear that has fallen onto our cheeks. You know how painful and devastated we are at the loss of this precious child. Please help the parents to use their tears as healing and not to hold back or try to be strong on their own when it's too much to handle. Thank you that you care about every single tear drop that falls from our eyes, it is not lost on you. Help us to mourn alongside these parents, and help us to continue to trust you moving forward.
