Heavenly Father, we come to you at this time of harrowing shock and grief. A dear loved one has been taken from us, so suddenly and so unexpectedly. We are lost for words – our hearts broken, our spirits shattered – a sorrow that only grows with each passing day as we long for our loved one’s presence in our lives.
With our heavy hearts we turn to you for comfort and for your everlasting love. Lighten our darkness, dear Lord. Help us see You in all Your glory and compassion so we are blessed with the understanding of Your will. In this time of immeasurable grief, we pray for strength and encouragement.
Our faith in you, Lord God, is what keeps us standing. You give us life, you give us sunshine, you give us the propensity for love, and that is more than enough. At a distressing time like this, we are also reminded of the frailty of life, our fleeting place in this world. We pray that you guide us to be wiser, to be kinder, and to be more appreciative of whatever time we have left.
can't support each other in times of tragedy, loss, or trouble, we are truly lost as a society. Regardless of all else, we seem to come together here on TNet when our cyber friends need us, and that is a great and wonderful thing to still see in this troubled world.
