Loving God, we come today to lift up those who are bereaved. We trust that you will comfort them and abide with them as they go through all the emotions they must be feeling right now.
We are confident that you will walk with them as they grieve, O God. Be with them through their pain and emptiness. We know that you will nurse them towards healing and eventually bring them to a place of peace. By your grace, they will feel whole and safe again.
We acknowledge your Sovereignty. We know that your vision stretches from everlasting to everlasting. Your thoughts are not our thoughts. And your ways are not our ways. We know that you are in control, and we surrender to your holy will.
Holy God, we thank you in advance for what you are doing in the lives of your people. We praise you. And in all things we give you glory. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
