Grief and Loss Prayers

Prayer for Renewal

Hide Thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. Create me a clean heart, O God; and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Cast me not away from Thy presence; and take not Thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation; and let a willing spirit uphold me.

- Psalms 51: 11-14

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.
