We come before You today with heavy hearts, grieving the loss of our loved ones. We know that death is a natural part of life, but it does not make the pain any easier to bear. We ask that You would give us the strength and comfort we need to get through this difficult time.
Lord, we pray that You would give us the grace to accept Your will and to trust in Your plan.
We ask that You would watch over us and give us the hope and peace that only You can provide. Lord, we pray that You would use this tragedy to bring us closer to You and to draw others to Your love and salvation.
We pray all of these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.
