Grace and peace be unto you.
Heavenly Father, God of Love, and Peace.
Glory be to your holy and matchless name,
Your wisdom and knowledge are beyond our understanding.
I bring before you all the parents whose children have died.
Whether from disease, murder, suicide, accident or any other means.
Lord, you know the pain they are going through, only you can understand.
May your Holy Spirit comfort them as only he can,
May he give them peace amidst the turmoil and the desire to face another day.
Lord, parents would prefer to outlive their children, but because of sin, many lives
have been cut short.
Help them to reflect on the wonderful moments they had together and cherish
the precious memories.
Reveal yourself to them in a new way so they know you are the God who cares.
I pray that they will experience your great love that passes all understanding.
May you give them joy after they are finished mourning and hope for despair.
Help them to trust in your amazing grace, knowing that you are in control.
In Jesus’s Name, Amen.
