Prayer for the Day: Grief
The pain of grief is very traumatizing and at the same time personal. It stirs up disbelief, shock, anger and fear. The effects could be shame, despondency, guilt and sadness. Thus, the Psalmist cries out “I am worn out from my groaning. All night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears” (Ps. 6:6). Lord Jesus Christ, we pray for those who grieve or are grieving for the ability to befriend their loss and grant them hope, resilience and the energies to move on. Amen.
