“Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted.” Matthew 5:4 NIV
Heavenly Father, during this holiday season, please bring comfort to all those who have lost loved ones. Please surround them with your peace and love. Let your Word encourage and strengthen them. Let them know that you are always there, even in the middle of their grief. Please help me to not get so wrapped up in holiday festivities that I forgot about those who are hurting. Lord, I thank You for the comfort You bring and I thank You for hearing and answering my prayers. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
If you know someone who has recently lost a loved one, please, don’t forget them in your prayers. When we don’t know exactly what to say or do for someone who is grieving don’t forget that prayer is always your best option. Never underestimate the power of prayer.
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.” John 14:1 NIV
