Loving Father, I lift up these parents who have so recently lost their precious child. You understand the grief that they are going through, because Your own dear Son was crucified and died on the cross.
You are our gracious God of Comfort and You understand our grief and sadness in a way that is beyond our comprehension. Comfort the heart of these parents I pray, as they mourn the loss of their child. Fill them with Your peace and hope. Thank You that underneath them are Your everlasting arms which are always there to hold and support and comfort.
Use me I pray, to be a comfort and help in their time of trouble. Please give me the right things to say to them, and the wisdom to know when to remain silent. Give them a deep awareness of Your presence that is with them every moment of the day. Draw them closer to each other and to You. In Jesus' name,
