“Dear Lord, I never expected to outlive my child. It’s not right, and it’s not fair. This loss affects so many people. I don’t know how to move on. I ask you to give me good memories of our life together. Help me trust you with the painful circumstances surrounding my child’s death. I want to glorify you, even in my pain. Show me how to do that and protect me from bitterness. Give me a new purpose for living and a way to honor my child’s life. I trust you, and I honor you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
For men are not cast off by the Lord forever.
Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love.
For he does not willingly bring affliction or grief to the children of men.
The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
Weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you asthe world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
