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.
“Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.”
(Psalm 31:9)

Prayer Of Protection Those With Dementia

Look down in pity and mercy on all that are suffering with the illness of dementia. Father we know that although our loved ones may not recognise the family and friends who love them dearly – Your Holy Spirit can commune with their human spirit in a unique and Godly way – which must be very precious to Your heart.

Father I ask Your protection on those that are suffering with this debilitating mental disease and pray that You will minister to the emotional and spiritual of those we love, with all forms of this mental illness.

Thank You Father that in the power of Your Holy Spirit, You can touch the heart of those that have lost the memories of those that are their nearest and dearest. Comfort those that feel excluded from a loved one with dementia, in the knowledge that Your grace is sufficient.

Thank you,

“O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.”
(Psalm 31:23)
