A Prayer For You


  

  Dear Heavenly Father,

  I haven't experienced this particular type of loss that this person is going through, yet I know
  from what I have learned over the years, that this type of loss never goes away. People and
  books on the subject tell me so. 

  So on behalf of this survivor and their love one, I offer this prayer in their time of  grief and
  need based on what I understand to be Your eternal love and plan.

  First, I give thanks to you God for your abiding presence. 

  Second, I give thanks to you God for this survivor's love one's  life, even though it was too
  short in our limited understanding. 

  Third, In Paul's writing to the church at Rome (Romans Ch. 8), he reminds us that nothing will
  separate us from the love of Christ." For I am convinced," he writes, that neither death, nor life,
  nor angels, etc., nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of
  God  in Jesus Christ our Lord. 

  Fourth, I know you knew their love one before they were born.  My faith teaches me that
  through your grace and mercy God, that you have received their love one home. I also thank
  you Father for your great promise that through you they will see each other again one day.

  Father, I ask for your continued guidance for this survivor through their journey of grief and that
  you continue to surround them with your love and hope.

  For it's in your son's most precious name I pray,

  Amen.
