Loving Father, I bring those to You who are facing the loss of a loved one today, and I pray Your special grace and comfort to all who are grieving at this time.
You are the great God of comfort and I pray that You would reach out Your arm of love and draw all who are having to face a life on their own, a life without their loved one, to Yourself.
I pray that Your Holy Spirit would comfort all those that trust in Jesus as their Saviour, knowing that we will one day meet again with loved ones who die in the Lord, but I also pray for those that do not know You and pray that at this time of sadness You would draw especially close to them. Give them the love and comfort that only comes from You and bring them into saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. In Jesus' name,
