A prayer for those who have lost someone


“Bring her to me.”

Those were your words, Jesus, when Mary was broken and sad over the loss of her loved one.

It’s your words today, Lord.

I pray for that woman or that man today who is kneeling, who loves you but who may be angry at the loss of someone so loved, so treasured.

“Bring her to me” is your call of compassion, of caring, and a deep understanding of who this person is to you. You are not afraid of their feelings, but more you long to give them strength and healing that can only come from You.

You wept with Mary, the Divine reaching from Heaven to mourn with her, to comfort as only You can.

May Your presence fill the room as this prayer is read today. May each one know that You are not unaware of their hurt and You love them deeply right where they are at this moment.

Thank You for the memories of this loved one. Thank you for their laughter. For every sweet moment.

Thank You for being a safe place.


In Jesus’ name, amen.

Lift up the heads and hearts that are pressed down with grief and sorrow and give them Your confidence that Your faith over theirr lives is enough right now until You strengthen them….infuse them with You strength Mighty Lord! Hold them in Your righteous right Hand and build them up in Your precious presence. I agree in my heart, that tbey can come to You and be held in the shelter of the Most High. In Jesus Name Amen and Amen!!
