Prayer For Loss And Deep Grief

O God, I come to You filled with hurt and sadness and even anger because of my great loss. Lord I know that You have a plan for each of our lives – but I am in such pain and grief that it is hard to focus on the truth that You do care and that You have had to face deep grief and loss too. Lord my hurt and pain runs deep and I feel that my heart is breaking – I ask you to touch my hurting heart.

I know Lord that You are the God of comfort and that You have been with me every step of the way and ask You to draw ever closer to me at this time for I feel that my whole world has been shattered.

I find it hard when people who don’t understand try to say words that they think are comforting but sometimes it makes the hurt even worse and I feel hurt and so very, very alone.

Lord I know it is true that in time the pain will lessen but please be with me – hold me close and stead me, for I know that without You I could not face another day – another hour.

I keep thinking about that song we used to sing when I was younger, never a heartache, and never a groan, never a teardrop, and never a moan, ever a danger but there on the throne, moment by moment He thinks of His own.

Hold me Lord I pray, and keep me moment by moment…
Moment by moment I am kept in Your love,
Moment by moment I’ve life from above,
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine,
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine

Thank You Lord that You are my God,

AMEN

Heavenly Father, thank You for the example of David who despite the many problems, pressures, disappointments and pain that he was called upon to suffer, trusted in Your never-failing promises and kept in his remembrance Your never-ending faithfulness. Help me to follow his example when life's pressures bear down on me and keep me under the shadow on Your goodness and grace - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father; I trust in You and thank You that there are no circumstances of life that You do not know about and that in all things I am more than a conqueror, through Christ, Who loved me and gave Himself for me. May I rejoice in the Lord at all times and in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, make my request known to You - for I have trusted in Your loving-kindness and my heart rejoices in God my Saviour - thank You in Jesus name, AMEN.

“But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.”
