Prayer For Loss Of A Loved One – The pain of separation from a loved one is always intense and grieving is our natural response to loss. It’s human to mourn the loss of a loved one. Even Jesus wept when he heard about the death of his friend Lazarus.
As someone who has also experienced the loss of loved ones I truly know what you are going through. The feelings of sadness, hurt, shock, anger, disappointment, disbelief, or guilt happens all at the same time but I want you to have this in mind that the LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18.
One of the most important parts of the healing process comes through prayers and scriptures and it’s my prayers that the holy spirit will pour his oil of gladness on your hurting soul as you pray these prayers in Jesus’ name. Amen!
