Through Christ our Lord, Amen

Amen is a word that means agreement, confirmation, or approval. It’s used at the end of prayers as a way of expressing your faith in what has been said. Amen originally comes from the Hebrew word aman which means “truly” or “certainly,” but over time has come to mean “so be it.”

Abraham Lincoln was known for ending his speeches with the word amen:

“Amen! We shall do it; we will do it; we are determined to do it.” (1860)

“It is well with my soul”

This prayer by Horatio Spafford became famous in 1873 because he wrote it as he and his family were traveling to Europe. He was grieving the loss of his daughter who had died from scarlet fever. The words resonated with people who were also suffering, and it has been used as a comfort ever since.

Dearest heavenly father, I come to you now humbled and grateful for the life that you have bestowed upon me.

Dear heavenly father, I come to you now humbled and grateful for the life that you have bestowed upon me.

It is in this spirit of gratitude that I seek your counsel, comfort and guidance in regards to my family member who has recently passed.

I know that he/she is with you now and happy but I am struggling with how to move forward in my own life without him/her here.

My faith tradition teaches me that death is not an end but a transition into another realm where our loved ones await us. While this idea offers some comfort, it doesn’t help me understand what happens when we die or how we can be sure our loved ones are okay on the other side.

Tremble not nor be afraid.

The Lord is with us even in our darkest hours. The Lord will lead us through the valley of the shadow of death and give strength to do his will. The Lord gives peace in our hearts.

It is well with my soul, It is well, it is well with my soul.

Amen.

Look to the lord when grieving the loss of a loved one let this prayer bring comfort to your family

In times of grief and sorrow, it is easy to forget that God is with you. He loves you and wants to see you through this difficult time. You can pray to him at any time, but he will also speak to you during prayer. The Lord is your savior, your friend and protector; he heals the brokenhearted and lifts up those who are cast down in spirit (Psalm 147:3-4). The Lord provides for his people; he gives strength for the weary and increases the power of their muscles (Isaiah 40:29).

The Psalms are filled with songs of praise that tell us how valuable we are in God’s eyes (1 Chronicles 16:11). In these verses we see words like “forgive”, “gracious”, “merciful” used over 50 times! There were many reasons why David wrote these psalms over 1000 years ago – sicknesses could be healed by faith rather than medicine because God had given wisdom through his word so we wouldn’t have to rely on doctors’ diagnoses alone anymore!

All throughout history there have been families who suffered loss due illness or accident – yet they still came out stronger than ever before because they had such strong belief system about our loving Heavenly Father who cares about each individual person living inside their body especially when times get tough.”

prayer for the bereaved family bible verse

When a loved one passes away, it’s natural to feel grief. But you can find comfort in the Bible and these specific scriptures.

Isaiah 41:10

The Bible verse for this prayer for the bereaved family is Isaiah 41:10. The chapter’s heading says, “Comfort, comfort my people!” It’s one of many verses that help us understand that God loves us and wants to take care of us, no matter what situation we may be in. God’s love is unwavering and sure, which means we can lean on him and know he will never leave us or forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6).

In times of sorrow and grief, knowing we have an all-powerful being who loves and cares about us can give us hope—and also strength to cope with our loss as best as possible.

John 14:1-4

John 14:1-4, “Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” Jesus is with us during all times—even when we aren’t sure about God’s presence or love for us! One day we’ll know that nothing can separate us from his love (Romans 8), but until then keep praying through whatever challenges life throws at you today.

Psalm 23

Psalm 23 is one of the most well-known and frequently recited passages in scripture. It’s also one of the most misunderstood. While its familiar lines are often thought to refer to a literal shepherd guiding his flock through life, Psalm 23 is actually a metaphor for God as our Shepherd and Protector. The restorative power that comes from this truth helps us find peace when we’re struggling with loss or grief, whether it be death or something else.

Let’s take a closer look at each line and consider how it applies to you during your time of need:

  • “I will fear no evil…” In times of great sorrow, many people experience feelings of vulnerability and vulnerability can lead to fear—but not if we remain confident that our heavenly Father is always at our side (and even before us). We can trust him completely because he loves us so much!
  • “…for thou art with me.” Even though there may be days when it feels like nobody understands what you’re going through, God knows exactly how you feel because he has experienced loss too–the death of His Son Jesus Christ on the cross so that we might live forever with Him in Heaven after death!

Psalm 34:18

A comforting verse for those who are mourning a loss is Psalm 34:18. This psalm promises that God is close to the brokenhearted and comforts those who mourn. He is also a refuge for the oppressed, so those suffering from grief can find comfort in knowing that their pain will be eased by God’s love and mercy, which is comforting indeed.

Romans 8:38-39

Romans 8:38-39 is a comforting Bible verse when you are grieving the loss of a loved one. It says, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

This verse tells us that nothing can separate us from God’s love for us no matter what happens in this world. Even if someone we love dies or leaves us for some reason (like moving away), we will always feel God’s love through His presence with us and by knowing He has plans for our lives beyond this earthly existence.

Romans 15:13

  • Romans 15:13: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
  • 1 Corinthians 15:12-18: “But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either; and if Christ has not been raised…your faith will be futile and empty.”

1 Corinthians 15:51-58

1 Corinthians 15:51-58

If you think about it, the resurrection of Jesus is the hope of all believers. It’s not just a historical event that happened in the past—it’s our hope for eternity. The resurrection means that death isn’t final and can be undone at any time.

Jesus was the first to rise from the dead because he is God himself, who lives forever (Hebrews 7:16), but he also rose so that we might live with him in heaven someday (Romans 6:4). We will never truly understand this mystery until we experience it ourselves when we die and rise again on that great day when Jesus returns (1 Corinthians 15:51-54).

1 Thessalonians 4:13-14

  • God is the God of all comfort.
  • He comforts us in all our trials.
  • He comforts us with the Holy Spirit.
  • He comforts us in all our afflictions.

These scriptures can provide comfort for a person living with the loss of a loved one

In times of grief, it’s common for people to lose faith in God. They may think that God is punishing them, or that he doesn’t care about them when they are hurting. The truth is that even though these things may seem true at first glance, the scriptures can help you see that God is always there for you and has a plan for your life.

The Bible is filled with many different types of passages that can help comfort people who are grieving the loss of someone they love. These passages will not only provide comfort but also strength and hope as well as some good advice on how to deal with grief in an appropriate way.
