Prayer For Loss Of A Child
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.

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.
Dear Father, Your Spirit carries the softness of eternity. You are the fragrance of comfort, you are the enfolding lullaby. Please encircle my dear friend in her grief. Cocoon her within your arms of love, whisper heavenly truth into her soul and keep each fragment of her broken heart safe. When we are in pieces your presence will keep us. So I lay her in your strong arms Jesus. Come carry her. Watch steadily over her day and night. May she come to know that her beloved child is safe with you. Not lost but found, known and cherished. 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.
Father, I ask for Your comfort and peace for these dear people who are grieving the loss of their child. Lord, this little one was brought into the world and placed into their family, and now they have to go through the sadness of losing such a treasure. My heart is breaking for them.
Lord, You know the pain and grief that they are going through, and You understand the sadness and confusion they are facing, which must be tinged with so many unanswered questions as to why this had to happen to them.
Draw very close to them, for You are the God of all comforts, Who has promised to comfort each one of us in all our afflictions and pain. Minister to their needs and Lord, despite the sadness that they are going through at this moment I pray that this would draw them into a place where they cast all their burdens and pain onto You and trust You to bring them through losing this child. I ask this in Jesus' name,
