Death reminds us once again the brevity of life. Life is indeed very short. And from our first breath to our last breath, God commands our destiny.
Here is a prayer for those who are grieving, mourning and hurting today. May you all be comforted by God’s presence during this very sorrowful time. He understands your grief, sorrow, loss and pain. He sees all the tears that fall. He is with you.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”Revelation 21:4
Dear Lord, I pray for Your peace and comfort for those who have just lost loved ones and for those who are commemorating the passing of their loved ones. May they all be comforted that You know best and that someday, there will be no more death, sorrow, pain, crying and mourning. May their loved ones rest in peace.
Thank You, Lord, that You are our stronghold, our comforter, our healer, our refuge, our strength and our hope in all seasons in our life. May the bereaved families feel Your comforting presence as they go through this sad time.
May we all be reminded that from life’s first cry to final breath, Jesus commands our destiny. May we all learn to serve You and others more, knowing that life is fleeting and that our days are numbered. I pray that all of us will value our lives and that we will do our best to stay healthy. May we all live our lives according to Your will and to entrust all our tomorrows to You. In Jesus’ mighty name, we pray. Amen.
