9 Short Comforting Prayers For The Grieving

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. Revelation 21:4

There are moments in life when we lose people we care deeply about. These people sometimes leave long-lasting prints in our lives. Some of them are people we know we can never replace. The impacts these people have on our lives are sometimes unmatched.

They may also be people you are so close to and haven’t imagined how life would be if they suddenly left this world.

When sin was born, so was death. There will come a time when our bodies are so weak that they cannot continue to live on this earth. There will also come a time when you will lose someone dear to you to a disease or an accident.

Sometimes we lose people through the wickedness of others and the evil that exists on this earth. It’s impossible to know exactly when we will lose the people we love but God wants us to know that he will heal our broken hearts and wipe away our tears. There will be no more death in paradise and all things will become new again.

As Christians, we must draw close to those who grieve and are in mourning. We must make them understand that there is no end with God and that one day everything will be alright.

When their whole world looks shattered and cloudy to them we must be their light and comfort. The Lord is Father, provider, and protector to all of us and will take care of anyone that is grieving or in pain.

We must pray for those who are mourning and going through deep pains due to the loss of a loved one. We must always be there for them and let them know that God’s plans for them are glorious and secured.

They should not lose hope because of the loss but rather keep faith in God. They must understand that the God who has existed from the beginning of creation and continues to exist knows the reason behind everything that happens. He is the husband to the widow, the father to the fatherless, mother to the motherless, and he is the One we all lean on.

Death is not the end but only another path the spirit takes. Even though we are broken because we do not see those who die anymore, we should pray for their souls so they go to God. This is the only way we can go to them and see them again.

We must help those who grieve to put their faith in God. We must strengthen them to be able to let go of the pain and hurt. We should hold them closer to us and not let them feel alone and dejected.

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
