Loving Lord and Heavenly king, I want to lift up some dear friends of mind that are going through much grief at the moment and are finding it so difficult to come to terms with all that has taken place in the last few days…
I humbly ask that You would come to them and provide the comfort they need to come to terms with all that has happened - and the strength to face the reality that things will never be as they were.
Lord I know that their grief seems to be overwhelming them and I am hurting for them, and know not what to do to help – and so I am coming to You to in prayer, to ask that You will meet each of them at their point of need and help them to turn to You at this sad time.
I pray that as the day passes Your healing touch will comfort and succour them in this time of distress and may this be a thing that causes each of them to draw closer to You, knowing that You alone can heal the broken-hearted and bring joy out of pain.
Thank You Lord for being there for me and into Your hands I place each one of these dear ones who have such sadness in their hearts – I KNOW in Whom I believe and an confident that You will bring good out of this situation – and to You be all the praise and glory,
“From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that
is higher than I.”

O Lord our Heavenly Father, thank You that You hear the cries of Your children and that Your ears are ever open to the pleas, petitions and prayers of those who reverence Your name, acknowledge Your perfections and praise You for Your goodness and grace. May we who are called by Your name, adore and admire You in our daily lives and serve You in all the circumstances of life, in spirit and in truth - both in our inner being and through our external bodies - in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.
“For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me
the heritage of those that fear thy name.”
