Prayer For Wife Who Lost Husband


Adam had more of you than anyone has had. Yet you said it is not good for him to be alone.

You made me to want to seek a spouse and fall in love. You molded us to need each other. And now Lord, death has come and dragged my beloved husband out of my arms.

Lord, if I could just board a plane or a boat or a train - if I could just touch the one I love. If I could just see that face again.

But it is your will that I stay here without him.

Lord, in this season, in this place, in my circumstances, bring contentment to me and make your portion enough.


Lord God,

Losing a spouse is devastating plain and simple.

The lack of control and utter helplessness,

The finality of death,

The feelings of hopelessness,

The minutes that feel like days.

Lord, I come to you asking for relief asking for relief from the sadness.

I'm asking for your renewal of my mind and heart. I'm asking for a fresh newness in my life.

I'm asking that I could again feel true happiness that comes without aching from what has been taken from me.

Lord, everything is stale. I am asking for a desire to want what is still in my life.

I'm asking for you to diminish those aching feelings that are never satisfied. Asking you to diminish those thoughts that have no future. Asking for powerful medicine for my mind, my emotions, my heart. Asking that my will could find union with yours in accepting my loss.

Lord, the Bible says you are my portion. Make my portion satisfy me.
