A Prayer For A Friend Who Lost Her Mother

A Prayer for a Friend Who Lost Her Mother: God, please keep an eye out for my friend. Her week has been difficult, so I want to make her feel better. Please give her the courage to endure this trying moment. As she navigates life, assist her in remembering that you love her and are at her side at all times. Give her the strength to once more appreciate the little things, such as the flavor of a cup of hot chocolate on a chilly day and the sound of birds chirping. And when she is overcome with sorrow or anguish, reassure her that you won’t abandon her or leave her (Deuteronomy 31:6). I ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.

A Prayer For A Friend Who Lost Her Mother

A Prayer For A Friend Who Lost Her Mother

When a loved one dies, it can be difficult to find words of comfort. If you are not religious, it is even more difficult. But this prayer may help you support your grieving friend and make their journey through grief easier.

Dear God,

Dear God,

I don’t know how to pray anymore. I used to pray all the time but now I feel like there is nothing left to give thanks for or ask for. The world seems bleak and only the things that were important before seem unimportant now. My mother died six months ago and even though I knew she was sick, it still came as a shock when she went so suddenly. There was no warning or preparation; just one day she was here and then the next day gone forever. When she died, I felt shock, denial, rage and loneliness – all at once! Then there was nothing – just an empty space where my mother had once been in my life making everything better than it really should be…

I’ve always taken for granted that my mother is here for me and that she will be there for years to come.

I’ve always taken for granted that my mother is here for me and that she will be there for years to come. When I was young, I thought of her as a superhero who could do anything, including flying around the world on a broomstick. As I got older, I realized that even though she does have superpowers (like being able to cook food), she’s not immortal or invincible.

However, sometimes it feels like these kinds of things happen in other people’s lives—people who don’t live next door or work with you each day at your job. It’s easy to forget how fragile life really is until something tragic happens close by—your neighbor loses a loved one in an accident; someone at your place of employment passes away unexpectedly; or maybe a cancer diagnosis changes everything you knew about yourself and those around you.[#]

I want you know that no matter what happens today and tomorrow and next week—I’m here if there’s anything I can do for you during this difficult time[#].

When she died, I felt shock, denial, rage and loneliness.

When your mother died, the shock was overwhelming. I remember the first time we talked on the phone and you told me that she had died. I asked if there was anything I could do for you, but you said no. You didn’t want to talk about it because it hurt too much to think about all of the things that now were gone forever: her smile, her laughter, her hugs and kisses and quick wit.

I could sense how much pain and grief were inside of you even though my words hadn’t brought them out yet—and so I waited with difficulty for a few days until finally one day when we were together again face-to-face and our conversation turned to memories of your mother (which is what people often end up doing after losing someone close). Then we cried together over all that had been lost when she died unexpectedly at such an early age—her health had always been fragile since childhood; but still one never expects death until it comes unexpectedly…

Sympathy Poems For Comfort In Time Of Need

Then I felt nothing.

When you lose a loved one, the five stages of grief are considered to be shock, denial, rage and loneliness. The last stage is guilt. You feel guilty because there was something you could have done differently or better to help them through the process. It’s not your fault they died, but it still feels like it is because you know that nothing can bring them back now and that feeling of helplessness is what makes us feel guilty.

I didn’t know how to deal with my feelings about losing my mother so I buried my head in work as much as possible until I found myself looking for other distractions from life itself: drinking heavily with friends at parties most weekends; sleeping around indiscriminately; living fast and hard without any regard for consequences until one morning I woke up on someone’s couch after going out all night long only to realize that I had no idea where my car keys were nor did I have enough money on me at that point in time to get home safely so instead of driving home drunk (and thus putting others at risk) while being unable-to-find-a-ride drunk (and thus putting yourself at risk), I called up someone who offered me their couch for the night just so they could get rid off me since apparently all good hosts must offer assistance when needed even if that assistance includes letting strangers stay overnight due solely based upon availability rather than necessity!!!

And now I feel guilt, because I do not know how to live without her loving presence in my life.

Guilt can be a normal part of the grieving process, but it can also cause you to feel alone in your pain. You may feel guilty for not feeling sad enough about the loss of your mother. You may feel guilty for being angry at her for dying when she did. Or even if you do not feel any anger or sadness, still there may be guilt just because you want her back so badly and cannot have her.

Guilt can keep us from healing emotionally and spiritually; however, prayer helps us deal with this emotion as well as other negative feelings that arise during bereavement such as anger, worry, sadness and guilt.

Please give me the strength to face each day without her and the courage to move forward without her guidance.

God is with you. You are not alone. He has a plan for your life and he will see you through this difficult time. Your mother may be gone, but she will never be forgotten. She is looking down upon you from heaven, watching over every step that you take as you walk through this world on your own now.

You are strong enough to get through anything because God has given us strength when we couldn’t do it on our own (2 Corinthians 12:9). You have support in all those around you who love and care about the person who was most special to them—you! You have people who would give anything for just one more day with their mother or father again before they crossed over into Heaven; don’t forget how lucky we all are just knowing that our loved ones live on in peace while we’re here still fighting battles both big and small every day without them beside us anymore…

Rely on Christ’s strength today because He’ll give back what seems impossible when we ask Him with faithfulness.”

Help me to find happiness again, so that when I think of my mother, as I surely will, it will bring a smile instead of tears.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I am so sad for my friend. She lost her mother. Please be with her and help her to find happiness again, so that when she thinks of her mother as I know she must, it will bring a smile instead of tears. Please comfort her with Your love and strength; and bless all Your children who mourn the loss of a loved one. Amen
