Recently I lost one of my best friends to a 7 year long battle with cancer. She left behind her husband and two boys ages 6 and 8. For me, I am not sad she passed away. Her and I had many conversations about her faith and about what the Lord had done for her. I know she is in Heaven praise God, she loved the Lord. What I am sad about is the loss of relationship. People are important, but the relationship is priceless. So in my grieving I would like to share 5 prayers and devotions that the Lord gave me to share with you that will help you in your grieving process.
Note: These are all instances I grieved over in my life time. ***I have enclosed a pdf link below each prayer for you to download these prayers and print any time. When you print just put settings to “double sided”. May God ease your heart with comfort and love my friend.

Dear Lord, I know you feel my grief and see I am in pain. I can’t feel you with me right now and I need to Lord. Please put your hands of mercy and comfort on me and allow me to feel you and see you through this pain. Be with family and all of their loved ones as I know they are in pain too. Give me the strength through my mourning that I may comfort others as well. Thank you for working on our broken hearts.

Prayer For The Loss Of Child
Dear Lord only you could help me understand why you would take a child away. Although I don’t understand and I am in pain I need your comfort. People say that the Lord will not give you more than you can bare but I now know this is not so. You give us more than we can bare so that we can rely on you and your comfort. Through this loss, pain, anger, heartbreak, and devastation I need you Lord and I ask you to comfort my heart, my soul, and my loved ones that are hurting with me. As painful as this is thank you for the time you gave us to love them.
As we mourn and until we meet again, In Jesus name,
