When someone you love dies, it changes your life forever. It’s not something you “get over”. The loss now becomes a part of who you are.
Loving Father, I am finding it so hard to even get up out of bed to start the day, knowing that I have to face it alone and without my loved one, I miss so dearly.
I know that without Your grace and sufficiency I could never get through the day, but I thank You that You have promised to be with me and to provide me with Your strength for the day as well as a bright hope for tomorrow.
I can’t imagine tomorrow being anything but a day filled with pain, as I do not have my loved one beside me, but I ask that in Your grace You will give me the strength to get through today, step by step, knowing that You are there to carry me, even when my heart seems to fail from the grief and pain that I am going through.
Thank You that You have promised to carry our pain and thank You that Your grace is sufficient for every eventuality in our lives.
Give me the strength and to cope with the loneliness I feel and help me to move forward in my life-plans, knowing that You are with me, to support and strengthen.
Give me hope for tomorrow, for my hope and my trust is in You, Lord.
Hold me close I pray and thank You for always being with me and the great comfort that I have in knowing You, as my own dear Saviour and friend. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
