A Prayer For My Dad In Heaven

When life becomes terribly difficult and your mind is filled with the questions “Why me?”, or “What did I do wrong to deserve this?”, sometimes a prayer is all you can manage. Life can be hard, but nothing compares to dealing with death in one’s family and losing a loved one. Our world also has its share of tragedies like natural disasters, suicides, car accidents and so on. These occur suddenly and never give us any time to prepare for them; however much we’d want to know the truth about what happens before we lose someone dear.

As I was scrolling through Facebook the other day, I saw a post that said “Prayer requests.” I looked at it and thought, “Who would I pray for?”

Well, I would pray for my dad. He passed away when I was 8 years old and my brother was 3.

He had cancer and it was very aggressive. He died after a year of knowing he had it. That was 12 years ago and sometimes it still feels like yesterday.

I remember going to school on days that he went in for his treatments and not being able to concentrate in class because I knew what my dad was going through at home. It broke my heart knowing that there was nothing that could be done to make him better. My mom always told me that no matter what happened, she would always love me and take care of me no matter what happened, so during those times when my dad wasn’t around, she took care of me as if he wasn’t dying from cancer—she just wanted us to be normal kids again even though there wasn’t really anything normal about our situation at all!

A Prayer For My Dad In Heaven

A Prayer for My Dad in Heaven

Father’s Day is a time to honor your dad and celebrate the role he played in your life. It’s also a time to reflect on the fact that you don’t have him physically present anymore.

If you lost your father, don’t let this day become another reminder of what has been taken from you. Instead, use it as an opportunity to celebrate everything he taught you before his passing: how to cook meatloaf, how to fix things around the house and even how to change a tire! Offer up prayers for his soul on Father’s Day instead of dwelling on what could have been or what should be different now without him here with us physically.

How to celebrate Father’s Day after a loss

  • Take time to remember the good times
  • Talk about your dad with your family
  • Honor your dad by giving back to the community
  • The best way to honor your dad is to remember him

Father’s Day is more than just celebrating those who are here on earth, but it’s also about the dads who have passed on and gone to heaven.

Father’s Day can be a time of mixed emotions for those who have lost their father. It can be a day of sadness or it can be a day of celebration. However, one thing is certain: your father is still with you in spirit and will always be there to guide you through life. If your dad was like mine, he would want his children to celebrate him and remember the good times they had together as a family. You may have some regrets about things that happened in the past but now is not the time for them.

I am sure my father would not want me spending this day feeling sad over what happened between us before he passed away because we were able to put everything behind us once he got sick with cancer and went into hospice care at home until he died peacefully at age 56 on November 12th 2015 after battling cancer for two years.

Our Father in Heaven Wants to Meet You in Prayer Today - Samoa Global News

short prayer for loss of father

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray for my dad today. I pray that you will continue to comfort him and keep him safe in your loving arms. Please help him to know that he is not alone in this world, even though he is no longer here with us on earth.

I ask for the opportunity to see him again, either in this life or the next. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for him now, so that he might be happy and contented wherever he may be.

Heavenly Father, please help me to always remember my father as the kind and loving man that he was. Thank you for giving me this wonderful chance to have such a wonderful father!

There’s a saying that goes “the eyes are the window to the soul.” When we lose someone important to us, it’s hard to know how to grieve. It can feel like our hearts are breaking and there’s nothing we can do about it. But there is something you can do: pray for your loved one in heaven.

It may sound silly if you’ve never tried it before, but prayer is an important part of the grieving process. It reminds us that there’s still someone out there who loves us and will always be watching over us. It also helps us feel connected to the person who has passed on—even though they’re not here with us anymore, their spirit lives forever in our hearts and minds. Maybe most importantly, prayer gives us a way to express ourselves when words just aren’t enough anymore—and sometimes they’re all we have left!

I’ve learned through my own experience as well as through counseling sessions with other people that praying for a lost loved one helps me feel more at peace with their passing on earth so I can focus more on living life fully myself now too!

So if you’re feeling lost right now and don’t know where else to turn then try praying for someone who has passed away today too!

prayer for dead father islam

A. The best prayer, or dua’, to say for our deceased parents, and even when they are alive, is that which God has taught us in the Qur’an: “’My Lord, bestow on them Your grace, even as they reared and nurtured me when I was a child.” (17: 24) Another prayer is that mentioned in the Qur’an as said by the Prophet Noah: “My Lord! Grant forgiveness to me and to my parents.” (71: 28) If you combine the two, you will be acting on the Prophet’s advice and saying the best prayers for them. In Arabic, it is a short prayer that says: “Rabbi-ghfir lee wa liwalidayy. Rabbi-rhamhuma kama rabbayani sagheera.” We normally say this prayer at the end of each prayer, whether obligatory or recommended, just before we finish the prayer with salam. But it can be said at any time: The more often the better.
