Prayer for Comfort in Loss
(a prayer for those who are grieving)

O Lord,

I walk in a bleak landscape.
I feel empty and the weather seems cold.
I keep putting one foot in front of the other,
Yet have little strength to lift my head.
Lead me through this dark valley,
Be with me and hold me close.
I trust that eventually I will find myself
At the peak of this grief mountain.
I want to see again, to feel again and to live again.

Prayer for Comfort in Difficult Times


I am crying out for help in this difficult time.
Help me to find some light in this darkness.
Lift my eyes to see even the faintest glimmer of hope
And hold tight to you.

Lord, you are beside me, stay close today.
Surround me with your love.
Help me to remember your goodness and trust in your saving grace.
May my tears turn to joy
And may your light flood this soul.
For surely you are my saviour,
My friend, and my guide.

Prayer for Strength when Grieving

(the prayer poem in the film above)

Lord, at the moment nothing seems to be able to help the loss I feel.
My heart is broken and my spirit mourns.
All I know is that Your grace is sufficient.
This day, this hour
Moment by moment
I choose to lean on You,
For when I am at my weakest Your strength is strongest.
I pour out my grief to You
And praise You that on one glorious day
When all suffering is extinguished and love has conquered
We shall walk together again.
