Prayer For Loss Of Mom

More than ever, I find myself in the hands of God. This is what I have wanted all my life from my youth. But now there is a difference; the initiative is entirely with God. It is indeed a profound spiritual experience to know and feel myself so totally in God's hands.

I desire neither earthly kingdom nor even freedom from birth and death. I desire only the deliverance from grief of all those afflicted by misery. Oh Lord, lead us from the unreal to the real; from darkness to light; from death to immortality. May there be peace in celestial regions

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come before thee I stand

O Blessed One, Shakyamuni Buddha / Precious treasury of compassion, Bestower of supreme inner peace, / You, who love all beings without exception, / Are the source of happiness and goodness; / And you guide us to the liberating path

In the name of God, the infinitely good, the all-merciful. Praise be to God, the Lord of the worlds. The infinitely good, the all-merciful. Master of the day of judgment. Thee we worship, and in thee, we seek help. Guide us upon the straight path

Our old women gods, we ask you! / Our old women gods, we ask you! / Then give us long life together, / May we live until our frosted hair is white / May we live till then. / This life that now we know!

Heavenly Father, at this moment, nothing seems to be able to help the loss I feel after my mother's passing. My heart is broken and my spirit mourns. All I know is that your grace is sufficient and there is comfort knowing she is with you in heaven

Heavenly Father, it has been so hard to finally come to terms with the fact that my precious Mom has finally passed away and losing her this way has been so difficult. My Mom had become such a special friend to me and there has never been a time when she was not there for me, to encourage and support as well as advise and correct, and now I feel somewhat disorientated to realise that I will never see her again this side of eternity.
Lord, I know that we all have to face death one day, but I am finding it quite hard to say goodbye. Please help me to come to terms with her death and get to the point where I can look back and celebrate and rejoice in all that she was to us all, and allow the deep feeling of loss to be replaced with a godly peace and joyful memories.
Lord, I do thank You for my Mom and for all that she meant to me. Thank You for her life and her selflessness, her wisdom and encouragement. May the lessons that I learned from her be reflected in what I say and do, and I do thank You that death is not a final separation but that in Christ, we will one day be reunited. What a wonderful realisation that not even death can separate us from our loved ones when we are all in Christ. Thank You that You are my God and Saviour. In Jesus' name,
