Prayer For Losing A Child

Lord, it was You that made us in Your image, with emotions and feelings, and I am hurting so much because of this loss. Lord, I feel utterly bewildered by all that has gone on and hardly know which way to turn. I just need Your strength to uphold me in this time of such enormous loss and such overwhelming grief.

I know that the Bible says that underneath are Your everlasting arms, and Lord, my pain is so deep that I really need Your grace and strength to comfort and succour me at this time. I ask You to draw very close to me and let me feel Your presence alongside me, in this difficult time of such great sadness.

Give me peace in my heart and comfort me I pray. Lead me by still waters and restore my soul. Keep my faith from faltering, hold me close to Your heart of love, and bind up my brokenness. The Bible says that You came to heal up the broken-hearted and refresh the soul of those that are hurting. Lord, today I ask that You would help and strengthen me in this time of loss. In Jesus' name,


Dear Heavenly Father, it is so distressing to watch those that we love suffering from memory loss, so they are not even able to remember their spouse or family members. Lord, the anguish that this causes is so intensely painful for everyone involved, and so we lift up all those that are having to care for friends and family members who are suffering from Alzheimer's disease or some other form of memory loss.

Pour out Your mercy and grace on all that are afflicted in this way, and give patience and comfort to those that have to watch as their loved ones gradually becoming estranged from them. Give them a deep sense of Your presence, and endue them with courage to face the loss that this condition brings upon all that are affected.

Lord, draw close to those that are having to go through the process of grieving their loss, while having to continue to care for their dear one. May Your perfect peace fill their heart and may they be strengthened by Your sufficient grace, to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name,


Father in heaven, let your grace be sufficient for me during this mourning period. Lord, knowing that I have to face each day without my child, is tough. But this is the confidence that I have, my child is in your presence where there is no sorrow or mourning. Help us to grieve as true believers of Jesus Christ, for we know that this is not the end we shall see each other in heaven. When we go through difficult times, remind us of the good times we had with our child and the joy that she brought in our lives. I honor you highly, for you are a loving Father. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray. Amen.

Father God, You are my refuge and strength a present help in time of need. Lord, I need you right now. I don't know how to cope with the loss of my child. I feel so lost it is like the whole world has crashed right before my eyes, and I don't know where to put my next step. My heart hurts, and nothing makes sense to me. But I know you love me too much and you're protecting me. Be my refuge now more than ever. Help me to accept what has happened and to hold onto the fond memories that I shared with my child instead of the pain, for I know I will see them again when I come into your presence. In Jesus' mighty name, I believe and pray. Amen.

Dear God, I bring every grieving parent into your throne of grace. Lord, they are going through a lot of pain after the loss of their children. It is not an easy thing for a parent to bury their child. Father comfort them. Help them to continue being faithful to you even through the pain. Lavish them with your love and fill the void left in their hearts with your unconditional love. In Jesus' powerful name, I believe and pray. Amen.

Heavenly Father, I am crying to you in my trouble. Deliver me from my distress, for I am empty and lost. I don't know what to do or how to cope with life after the demise of my child. I loved my baby so much she was my world. Lord, give me the strength to go on and help me to take one step at a time as I come to terms with what has happened. Father, hold me and console me for it is only in you that I can find the strength to go on with life. Thank you, Lord, for answering my prayers. In Jesus' holy name, I believe and pray. Amen.

O Lord, I give you my worries and concerns and I ask for your guidance. You see it all, the outer circumstances, the inner turmoil. I know that you understand my life, that sometimes my heart weighs heavy with trouble. Right now I lay all these things before you. I breathe in, safe in the knowledge that I am held by grace. I breathe out, knowing that I am held secure in your arms. And I wait on you. For you are all truth, you are overflowing love, you are a beacon of hope and a fortress of faith. Lord, I choose to be attentive to your voice. May I be alert to your Spirit's guiding as I journey onwards with you. I love you Father. Amen.

Abba Father, We long to be with our dear beloved child, our hearts are heavy with deep sorrow and our breath is shallow. Please carry us, for we are overwhelmed by the pain of our grief. Words can not express the depth of our loss or the heartache we feel. We know you are with our dear beloved son (daughter), your heart is overjoyed by him. His breath is new life in Heaven. Please come and nurture our precious one. Thank you for the hope of eternal life that he has now received. Lord, you will keep him safe until we meet. We entrust him into your care now. Amen.
