Grief and Loss Prayers

Prayer for a Sick Person

O Father of mercies and God of all comfort, our only help in time of need: We humbly beseech thee to behold, visit, and relieve thy sick servant ______ for whom our prayers are desired. Look upon him with the eyes of thy mercy; comfort him with a sense of thy goodness; preserve him from the temptations of the enemy; and give him patience under his affliction. In thy good time, restore him to health, and enable him to lead the residue of his life in thy fear, and to thy glory; and grant that he may dwell with thee in life everlasting; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Tips for Dealing with Sudden Life Changes

Ralph Waldo Emerson believed that challenges “are occasions a good learner would not miss.” We don’t like change, period. We don’t like it when our preferred parking spot or favorite seat is taken. On a larger scale, when we experience big changes in life like loss or disappointments that are sudden it feels like a sucker punch.
