Prayer for loss of loved one

I am with you always words alongside a glowing candle
We read in Psalm 23 that "I may walk through valleys as dark as death, but I won’t be afraid" (v.4, CEV).

Why is this so? Why are we not to fear, even death itself? It is because God, the creator and sustainer of all things, is with us. He is behind us, and before us. And he has travelled before us - to the cross and ultimately triumphed over death itself. And Christ has gone to prepare a room for us all, where we shall dwell forever in His house, and in His love (Psalm 23:6). May you know God's comfort and gentle embrace now as you pray and mourn the passing of your dear friend or relative. Further down this page is a heartfelt prayer for the loss of a precious husband. We begin with a prayer for the loss of a loved one:-

Short prayer for loss of husband


I have no words, I cannot express, the things I feel at the loss of my husband, my soul mate, my nearest and dearest friend.
Please hold me and keep me as I walk this silent road, barren, dry and empty.

I trust him into your care, into the fullness of eternity with you.
I trust myself into your care, that you might gradually pour new light, hope and resurrection faith back into my soul.
You know him and love him dearly.
You know me, I need not worry for word, I simply come as I am before you.

He heals the broken-hearted and bandages their wounds.

Psalm 147:3 (GNT)

A Prayer of Comfort

a heartfelt prayer reflecting on the eternal nature of life:-

Comfort me with Your love O God

Comfort me with Your love O God
Wrap me up in Your strong embrace
Shelter me from the storm O Lord
Envelop me in Your tender care

By day I pour out my heartbreak to You
By night I give you my racing thoughts

In You I take refuge
In You I will not be afraid
For you hold me strong, You hold me safe

Calm my fearful heart O God
Still my anxious mind O Lord

For all my life is found in You
All my being is given to You
All my hope begins in You
