Prayer in Time Of Bereavement

Lord, you are close to the broken hearted
Be with me now in my grief and loneliness.
Give me the courage to face my loss and not to grieve in silence
Be with me as I struggle with many different and painful feelings.
Ease the hurt in my heart.
Encircle me in your love
Help me to believe that one day I will no longer have this deep sorrow
May I find comfort in sharing my grief,
With those who understand the strong bonds of love
Stay with me Lord, support me.
Help me to know that your power is at work within me as I deal with my grief.

Amen
