Prayer for Those Who Grieve During the Holidays

Heavenly Father,
We approach You on bended knees, our hearts heavy for those who grieve from loss. Whether it’s one less chair at the dining room table or a phone that doesn’t ring, the reminder of a loved one who has passed or is estranged from us is painful, especially during the holiday season.

We pray You comfort those who mourn. Hide them in the cleft of Your rock when their heartache becomes too great.
We pray You give them courage to face one more moment, one more hour and one more day. Please give them “a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair” (Isaiah 61:3).
In Christ’s Holy Name we pray,
Amen.
PLEASE JOIN OUR 30 DAY PRAYER CHALLENGE IN JANUARY!
