Prayer Of Helplessness After Tragic Death

Oh Lord, I have neither words to speak nor the strength to stand and I come to You grief-stricken because of this terrible tragic loss - and all I can cry is Abba.. Father. All I can ask is - Why?

Lord You know the shocking facts of this tragic death and You know the deep despair I feel as I now have to face the future alone. Lord I feel so shocked.. so alone.. and so abandoned – so helpless, even though I know within my heart that You are there with me, and have Your loving arms all around me. Draw me very close to Yourself at this time Lord I pray – I need You…

Oh Lord I feel so empty, so hollow – so numb and even afraid of the future. Lord I don’t know what to do or where to turn - except to look to You and plead that in Your grace, You will help me to get through this – and bring me out the other side. Lord, I have no-one but YOU

Help me Lord to come to terms of this tragic death and help me I pray, to face the future with courage. And Lord, although I doubt that You will ever fully answer my question.. “why”, yet I pray that You will give me an understanding heart – and help me to come to terms with what has happened. Be my comfort, my strength and my hope in Whom I trust, in Jesus name I pray,

Amen
