A Prayer For Those Who Are Missing A Loved One…

December 22, 2014


Here is a prayer for everyone who is missing someone today…

Dear Lord,

You promise to be near to the broken-hearted. You promise to bind our wounds. You promise to turn our mourning to joy. You bring beauty from ashes and you restore our souls. Your promises are for yesterday, today and forever and they are for each one of us. What you say you will do, you do…but we must trust you … believe you… and take you at your word. We must be diligent to seek you. You desire fellowship with us. You don’t just take our pain away instantly, but you  use all things to work together for our good and you will use our pain to draw us closer to you and to change us to be more like you.

Grieving is not easy. It always lasts longer than we would like. No one wants to hurt and unfortunately, the only way to heal from grief is to go through it…so many struggle and are so overwhelmed, they just want to wake up in heaven to escape the pain…they don’t feel like they can endure it and they don’t want to…Lord, for anyone who is feeling this way, we pray for your angels to be about them. We ask that they will feel your nearness… may they see a glimmer of hope…help them to cling to your promises that you will heal their wounds and give them the oil of joy for their sadness.

Father, for every aching heart… For every person who is longing to hold a loved one and can’t… For every person who is walking around feeling like they are missing part of themselves… we pray for your Holy Spirit to fall afresh on them. May they believe that you will walk them through the dark valley and watch over them like a loving Shepherd… that you will lead them to the still waters where they can drink of the Living Water that restores and replenishes the dry, parched places in their heart… may they remember that you will lead them to green pastures…to the land of the living.  You promise, Lord and you will not fail us. May they find the strength to trust you with their pain. May they find the courage to take one day at a time… May they dare to reach out their hand in the dark and say “I will trust you Lord…I don’t see a way, but I will trust that you do”.

Please bring healing and hope, Lord. In the name of Jesus we ask these things, Amen

Praying you feel His presence like never before!
In His love,
