Prayer For Losing Child
God in heaven, I don't want to live like this because it hurts to the core of my heart. Rescue me from this pain, set me free from the sorrow of death. I am in despair, help me to find hope in you. Remove guilt from my heart for the enemy keeps attacking my mind about the death of my child. Cover me with your glory and strengthen me to overcome the lies that the enemy is feeding my soul. Help my family and me to walk in your glorious light. In Jesus' all-knowing name, I pray. Amen.
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.
Lord, you are the light of my salvation I will not fear. Even though I am going through a hard time, I put my trust in you. You are the stronghold of my life go before my family and I as we prepare to lay our child to rest. Let your steadfast love comfort my troubled heart. Help me to remember that I am more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray. Amen.
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, 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.
God, we know that this baby is in heaven with you but we're grieving the loss of him/her here on earth. It seems unfair and it's devastating, but I pray that you would continue to wrap your arms around us as we cry, mourn, and remember the life of this precious child. Please be with the parents as they mourn the loss of the hope they had for their child. Wipe their tears when it just seems too heavy for them. Help them to know that you are in control and that there will be a day when all the heartache and brokenness of the world will be gone forever.
God, thank you that you promise to be our refuge, our safe place, our protector, and our shelter when we are battling through a storm. I pray that you would provide that shelter for my friend who had to say goodbye to their child. Help us to surround him/her with Your love during this time, and give them peace so they would know you love them and have not abandoned them. Give them the strength to take one day at a time, one moment at a time, and one step forward at a time.
Lord, please comfort my friend and his/her family who is hurting right now because of the loss of their child. Would you give them peace today as they navigate through a season that they thought would look differently? Please wrap your arms around them and send people their way who will love them, provide for their needs, and who will walk alongside them through this time of mour
