A prayer for the grieving heart

Father,

I thank you for never leaving my side; for walking beside me through the darkness. Through my deepest lows, I ask that you wrap me a little closer in your perfect love. Drape me in grace and mend what is broken in me. Clothe me in strength when I feel that the days are long and hard. Take this time in the midst of my sorrow to refine me. Pick up the shattered pieces of my heart and make it new; that one day I may pour out love abundantly. Revive what peace and joy has been lost in me and give me a new found happiness in You. When I question You and I don’t understand why, God, I ask that You comfort my wandering heart to Your promises. When life doesn’t seem fair, comfort me and come running to me as a father would. I fix my eyes on You, Jesus. I recognize that this is part of my journey and one day there will be healing and no more sorrow. I find peace in knowing who You are until You return.

Amen.
