Penny Jordan
Losing your beloved parents as well as now being an "adult Orphan"

Desperately need some help in dealing with the unbearable pain of the loss of both my beloved parents and suddenly becoming an adult Orphan and finding a reason to go on.

My beloved parents, who were also my very best friends,have both passed away somewhat recently and I just cannot get through the unbearable pain & heartache from losing them.
I'm a 57 year old female, divorced w/no children or any other relatives, making me truly an adult "orphan". I've become a recluse & barely get day to day things done required to live & have lost all interest in everything.
I find very little comfort in other folks company as I'm so completly devastated by the loss of my 2 "treasures". I not only have a broken heart, but a broken spirit as well.The deep unconditional love & security I felt all my life is gone & wish I could be with them now. The "continuity" of having the kindness & loving support of your own family (husband/children) when ones parents pass on isn't here in my situation which I'm sure contributed to the unbearable pain & emptyness I'm feeling. I desperatly need help in coping and having a reason to go on in this cold hard world.

Dear Lord,
I pray for Penny, I understand her pain, as I know you do even more intimately. You took my Mother to heaven a few years ago, and I found it hard to live and go on, and many days still do, I cannot imagine losing both at once (even though my relationship with my dad is difficult), I ask that you pour out your comforting spirit on Penny and help her to find a purpose in life, your purpose. Let her know that there are many who will love and need her in this human family, and that she is never truly alone. Heal and mend her loneliness, comfort her in times when the loneliness won't go. Let her know that this stranger cares enough to pray for her, and share her sorrow and her burdens. Let her find true friends, companions, chosen family, and if she chooses, a community of faith to support her. I pray these things in Jesus' precious name,
