Dear Loving God,

I come before You te with a heart that is heavy with grief and loss. The pain feels overwhelming at times, and I struggle to find the strength to carry on. But in the midst of this darkness, I know that You are my light and my refuge. You understand my sorrow better than anyone else, and You are always ready to comfort me.

Lord, please wrap Your loving arms around me and give me the courage to face each day. Help me to remember the good times and cherish the memories without being consumed by sadness. Grant me the grace to accept what cannot be changed and the wisdom to see Your purpose in every trial.

I pray for Your healing touch upon my heart. Fill the empty spaces with Your love and let Your peace that surpasses all understanding guard my heart and mind. Teach me to lean on You and draw strength from Your promises. Remind me that though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, You are with me.

Lord, I lift up my grieving loved ones as well. May they also find comfort in Your presence and be surrounded by Your love. Encourage us to support one another and draw closer to You during this time. Thank You for being our constant companion and source of hope.

In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

  2. Jesus Wept (John 11:35): In the shortest verse in the Bible, we see Jesus Himself mourning the loss of a loved one. How does knowing that Jesus experienced grief help you process your own feelings of loss?

  5. Grief as a Process (Ecclesiastes 3:1-4): "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot… a time to mourn and a time to dance." Reflect on the different seasons of your grief. Where do you see yourself in this process now?

  6. Hope in Resurrection (1 Thessalonians 4:13-14): "Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope." Write about the hope you have in the resurrection and how it changes your view of loss and death.

  7. Casting Your Burdens (1 Peter 5:7): "Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you." Describe your struggles in handing over your grief and anxiety to God. What steps can you take to trust Him more with your pain?

  8. Job’s Journey (Job 1:20-22): Job stood up and tore his robe in grief. He shaved his head and fell to the ground to worship. ‘Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.’" Consider Job’s response to loss. How do you feel about his way of grieving? Can you find a balance between grieving your loss and continuing to praise God?
