Prayer for Ecclesiastes 1

Choose Verse

Heavenly Father, thank You for this honest assessment of living life in this fallen world, without Christ. Keep us from chasing after any of the vain things that this world offers, knowing that there is nothing on earth that has lasting value except to know You and the Lord Jesus Christ, my God and Saviour. May I place You in the centre of my life knowing that the whole duty and delight of man is to worship and praise You for Your goodness and grace to us and to all men. Amen

“Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.”

Grief Due To Loss Of A Loved One

Loving Father, I am finding it so hard to even get up out of bed to start the day, knowing that I have to face it alone and without the one I love so dearly – I know that without Your grace and sufficiency I could never get through the day – but I thank You that You have promised to be with me and to provide me with Your strength for the day as well as bright hope for tomorrow.

I can’t imagine tomorrow being anything but a day filled with pain – as I do not have my loved one beside me, but I ask that in Your grace You will give me the strength to get through today, step by step - knowing that You are there to carry me, even when my heart seems to fail from the grief and pain that I am going through.

Thank You that You have promised to carry our pain and thank You that Your grace is sufficient for every eventuality in our lives. Give me the strength and to cope with the loneliness I feel and help me to move forward in my life-plans, knowing that You are with me, to support and strengthen.

Give me hope for tomorrow – for my hope and my trust is in You, Lord. Hold me close I pray and thank You for always being with me and the great comfort that I have in knowing You, as my own dear Saviour and friend.
“For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.”
(Ecclesiastes 1:18)
