We all know that God is love and mercy, which makes Him the one to turn to in times of grief. God can help you find peace in the midst of sorrow, hope in the midst of despair, and a reason to live when life seems meaningless.
God knows exactly what you are feeling at this time because He Himself experienced loss when He had His son die on the cross for our sins. In His infinite grace, He wants us to know that our loved ones did not die vainly but rather lived lives full of meaning and purpose. They were partakers in His divine nature through faith and now they are living with Him forevermore!
As we grieve with God over our loss it helps us realize that death is not an end but rather a new beginning – one where we will be reunited once again with those we have lost here on earth so that together we can enjoy eternity together with them!

- Merciful Father in heaven, hear my prayer as I lift up to your ears my concerned mind and worries about _____________ (name).
- Pray for the person who died.
- Pray for their family.
- Pray for their friends and community members that they were a part of.
- Pray for the church that they were a part of or attended regularly if this was applicable for them. This will help comfort those who are grieving as well as give hope to those who have lost faith due to their loss and need it most during this time.
- Be sure to pray not only for what is happening locally but also globally: world issues such as climate change, national politics including immigration conflicts in the United States (as well as other countries), international conflicts including war in Syria and other parts of the Middle East region where people may be fleeing persecution by ISIS fighters; political unrest with Russia after Russian hackers attacked American election systems last year–all these things contribute towards our collective anxiety levels which make us more likely to feel depressed or anxious when we think about them too much! It’s important that we take time each day/weekend/monthly… whatever works best depending on how busy life gets!

Remind me that there is nothing more precious than living in each moment with my loved ones who are still here with us today; their memory will continue on through our hearts and minds, long after they die.
