Dear Heavenly Father,

I trust that You see my tears and hear my cries, and I believe that You are here with me, holding me through this storm.

Lord, help me to remember the beautiful memories and moments I shared with my loved one. Illuminate my heart with gratitude for the time we had together, and let those memories bring a smile to my face amidst the tears. Give me the strength to face each day with hope and the courage to move forward, even when it feels impossible.

I know that You have a purpose and plan, even when I cannot see it clearly. Help me to trust in Your wisdom and timing. Fill me with Your peace, which surpasses all understanding, and grant me the grace to accept what I cannot change. Let Your love be a balm to my soul, healing the wounds of loss and restoring my spirit.

Guide me, Lord, as I journey through this season of grief. Surround me with those who can offer support and understanding. Let me lean on them as I lean on You. Use this time of mourning to draw me closer to You, to deepen my faith, and to remind me of the promise of eternal life where we shall be reunited with our loved ones.

Thank You for being my anchor and my refuge. I place my trust in You and ask for Your continuous presence in my life. In Jesus’ name, I pray.
