PRAYERS FOR THE BEREAVED
Administrator, Saturday 31 May 2014 - 06:22:38

A PRAYER FOR THE BEREAVED

Lord, I come to You in prayer, asking you to touch my broken heart. Grant me, O Lord, relief of pain in my grief. Fill my emptiness with the presence of Your Spirit, who is the comforter. Walk with me, Father, through the stages of grief, especially anger, guilt, and depression. Bring me, I pray, through the darkness of death to the light and hope of Your Son's resurrection.
I offer to You, Lord, all my questions and doubts, asking that You give me in Your time some sense of peace and understanding. Most of all, grant me Your strength and the grace of surrender to let my loved ones go, to release the gift of their lives to You, the giver of all life. Be close to me on my journey of grief, and draw good from the pain I experience. All this I ask through Christ our Lord. Amen.



A PRAYER FOR OUR LOVED ONE(S)

O God, because You are not rigorous in searching out sins, we confidently hope to find a place with You. O my praise and deeds, for which I give thanks to You with joy, and I now beseech You on behalf of (insert name) failings. Hear me for the sake of Him who is the medicine of our wounds, of Him who hung upon the tree, of Him who now sits at Your right hand and makes intercessions for us. Forgive, Lord, forgive, I beseech You. Let Your mercy be exalted above Your justice. I believe that You have already done what I ask, but accept, O Lord, this "offering of my mouth." May (insert name) rest in peace, O my Lord, my God.
(The Prayer of St. Augustine upon the death of his mother, St. Monica. Modified for personal use.)
