Prayer About An Unexpected Death

Heavenly Father, I know and believe that our times are in Your hands, but Lord it’s so often such a shock to us when a dear loved one meets with a sudden or unexpected death, through an accident or perhaps due to some unforeseen tragedy, which takes the life of someone long before it would be expected.

Lord, I bring before You today those who are having to go through such a tragic loss, and pray that You would be very close to each one that is in mourning today over such a loss, and are perhaps confused or even angry that such a devastating occurrence has overtaken them, without any apparent warning.

You are the God of all comfort Who comforts us in time of need, and I pray that for those that are facing such a difficult trial today. Uphold them and draw very close to them. Raise up I pray, the right people to minister to them and to be a genuine comfort and support at this time of tragedy and grief.

Lord, I don’t understand why our loved ones should suddenly be removed from us through a sudden, unexpected death, but Lord I trust You to soothe away the hurt in time, for shall not the God of all the earth do right? In Jesus' name,
