Prayer For A Grieving Heart

Praying for a person who is deep in grief can be an overwhelming experience. Sometimes they are angry with themselves. Sometimes they feel guilty, as if they were abandoning their loved one. In these tried times, it helps to know that someone’s thoughts and prayers are with you as you struggle through your grief.


I come before you today with a heavy heart. I know that this is not the way it was meant to be, and I know that my grief is not for myself alone. It is for those who were taken from this world so suddenly and without warning.

Please help me to rise above my own suffering and show compassion to those who are mourning as well. Help me to lift them up in prayer, knowing that you are always there for us when we need you most.

In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

Sometimes the pain seems more than you can bear. When someone you love dies, it can be very painful. There are times when you wish the mourning would end and you would have some relief from your grief. Here is a prayer for a grieving heart—a prayer to help carry you through this difficult time. In this article you’ll read more comfort prayer for loss of loved one.

Dear God,

I am so tired of hurting. I am tired of feeling like my heart is broken, and that there’s no one to help me mend it. I feel like everyone has abandoned me, even though they’re still here physically. They’re just not here spiritually. They’re not willing to lift up a hand or a prayer for me.

But God… you have never left me. You have never abandoned me. Your love has always been there and it’s never going anywhere. Please help me remember that you are the one who holds my heart together, even when it seems like it’s falling apart. Please remind me that your grace is enough for all of us, because sometimes it feels like it isn’t enough for me alone.

Thank you for always being there when we need you most!

Dear God,

I’m so grateful for your gift of life. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to love and be loved, to work and play, to give and receive. But I’m also human, and sometimes I feel like my heart is too big for this world.

When everything seems like too much, help me remember that it’s not about me—it’s about you. And when my heart is overflowing with the love you’ve given me, help me give it away in return.

I pray that we’ll all always have enough room in our hearts to keep loving each other as deeply as we can—and that we’ll never stop finding ways to love ourselves more fully than ever before. You’ll also see prayer for the bereaved family bible verse in the article.

Prayer For A Grieving Heart

Grieving a loved one is tough, but it doesn’t need to be done alone. I’ve put together a simple prayer to help you find comfort and peace as you journey towards healing.

Dear God,

Dear God,

You are the only one who can help me. You are the only one who can give me peace and hope. I know that if I put my trust in you, things can change for the better.

I ask that You heal my heart and give me strength to face tomorrow with a renewed sense of purpose. Help me to remember that even when things seem bad, they will get better in time—and there is always someone ready to lend an ear or a shoulder when needed most!

I am heartbroken. I’m so sad and lonely, and scared and angry.

Dear God,

I am heartbroken. I’m so sad and lonely, and scared and angry. You see me in my pain, but I can’t understand why this happened to me. I want to know what Your plan is for me. Why am I here? What am I supposed to do? The pain is too much for me to bear alone; every day it gets worse somehow even though it seemed like it couldn’t get any worse than yesterday or the day before that or when you first told me about my loss…

There are moments when all of this seems too much for anyone—for anyone anywhere on earth—and no one should have to go through such agony at all…

I don’t understand this hurt I feel, and I can’t make sense of it.

You may be asking yourself, “Why do I feel this way?”

The answer isn’t simple. You are not alone in your grief. There are many reasons why these feelings come on. Sometimes they can be the result of a traumatic experience or the loss of someone close to us. This could be a death in the family, divorce, moving away from home, job loss or failure to achieve goals we’ve set for ourselves—or even losing something material like an object that was valuable to us but isn’t anymore (like a beloved car). It could also be because we have been unable to resolve feelings related to past hurts and disappointments—feelings that may have been buried deep inside us for years but never dealt with properly until now.

Whatever it is that has caused your heartache and sorrow at this time in your life will eventually pass away with time and God’s grace once again enters into your life again; however

The pain is raw and real, and so is my faith in you.

The pain is raw and real. It’s a reminder of the reality of death, life, and the pain of others. I know that when it feels like you can’t go on anymore, you’re going to be okay. You will get through this because no matter how bad it gets or how hard it gets for me to understand why this happened, I know that my God is bigger than my questions.

Give me peace that passes all understanding and a hope that endures.

When you are experiencing a loss, it is easy to get caught up in your pain. You may be overwhelmed with grief and find it difficult to focus on anything else. It is important to remember that God has given us peace—a gift that passes all understanding (Philippians 4:7).

A grieving heart can feel very much like the world is falling apart around us and our lives are spinning out of control. The Bible describes this as “warring against God” (2 Timothy 2:4). When we commit ourselves to Christ, we become part of His body; therefore, when someone we love dies or leaves us, we are no longer at war with them but instead at peace with them—and this includes those who have gone before us into eternity! We must learn how to trust God fully even during times when everything seems upside down or chaotic.

Help me to put my trust in You alone at this time when I feel so broken.

Dear God,

I am asking for your help. I am in such pain, and I need to know that You are there. Please help me to trust in You alone at this time when I feel so broken. Help me to put my faith in Your love, plan and timing; Your power and goodness; Your mercy, justice and forgiveness. Help me to trust that these things will work out for good even if it doesn’t always seem like they will right now (Romans 8:28). Please be with my family as they grieve their loss because of this tragedy as well as all those who have lost loved ones due to gun violence in America today! In Jesus name we pray…

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Amen. It’s a word that means so be it, an answer to prayer, and an affirmation of faith.

Amen is the most common word found in the Bible. It is used 3 times more than any other word in Scripture (the next nearest word would be Lord). Amen is a word of agreement and praise, of worship and prayer.

Amen comes from a Hebrew root which means “to be firm” or “to be stable.” Because it speaks of stability, amen has been used since early times as part of oaths – as when someone says “so help me God! Amen! Amen! I swear this on my mother’s grave!” This usage connects back even further: before Christians were called Christians they were known as Nazarenes – followers of Jesus who lived by his teachings about loving one another, being kind to strangers (and foes), caring for the poor and oppressed…and what did those teachings say? Be ye therefore perfect even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect; even as He was perfect when he created all things before time began.

Comfort Prayer For Loss Of Loved One

Father, please give me the joy of the gospel; may I find comfort in Christ even in my sorrow. Wrap me up in the calm and solace that only you can give. Please let this load lighten as the days turn into months. As the days turn into months and years, may I be an instrument of your encouragement and blessing to someone else who must travel a path similar to mine. Please be the God of all consolation that I can point them toward. I know that you will never stop loving me and being there for me. Please be the one and only safe haven for me.
