1 Peter 5:7
Grieving with Hope
Prayer for Anyone Grieving
God, while we don’t always have answers as to why we suffer, we are grateful that You are with us in our suffering. But if we’re being honest, it can be easy to forget You are near when we are lost in our grief. Sometimes the pain makes us feel numb, but at other times, it tears us apart.
When the weight of what we are walking through overwhelms us, remind us of Your presence. Create something eternally beautiful out of our pain, and help us to keep going.
Show us how to rejoice in our sufferings, so that suffering produces endurance, endurance produces character, and character produces hope.
We know that You are the God who is close to us. You are near to the brokenhearted and You save the crushed in spirit. You are our God, and You never leave us.
Though sorrow may surround us, remind us that joy is coming. Even in our grieving, let our lives bring You glory.
En el nombre de Jesús, amén.
