Prayer For Strength in Planning a Funeral

Dear Lord, thank You that You are our refuge and strength and that You are ever close to those that mourn. Oh Lord, I do pray that You would give us the help and wisdom that we need at this time - as we face the task of having to make all the arrangements for the forthcoming funeral, while at the same time trying to come to terms with our sad loss.

Lord, there seems to be so much to do and so many people to contact that I feel a little overwhelmed by all that has to be done and I pray that You would lead and guide as we set about making the arrangements for funeral.

Hold me close in Your loving arms and provide me with all that I need to carry out this daunting task. Thank You that You have promised to support us in our weaknesses as we cast all our cares upon You.

Give me Your peace that passes human understanding and the patience to deal with all those with whom I need to come in contact. Thank You Lord that Your everlasting arms are always there to uphold and strengthen and support and sustain – and praise Your holy name that You are a Saviour Who cares for each one of Your children.. Thank You Lord Jesus,

Amen
