Sympathy Prayer For Loss Of Mother

Our family is sad today because our mother passed away. She was old and sick, and it was her time to go. She will be missed by us all. Our family would like to offer you a comforting sympathy prayer for the loss of your mother.

Our Father, who art in heaven. Hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Though many of my articles are philosophical and highly conceptual, I thought it would be a good idea occasionally write about concrete things that you can do to improve your life so you have something actionable to read, rather than the same old thing. Here is one such article.

Bright angel of mercy, star of the dawning day, check the list of things I want you to bring me from there. From the wholesome peace, where I am bound for, give me strength to bear without complaining a father’s tenderness for a journey long and hard; so when my earthly pilgrimage is done, I may deserve to be with God forever in heaven.

Sympathy Prayer For Loss Of Mother

The death of a mother is heartbreaking. Whether it was expected or unexpected. It leaves us grieving throughout our lifetime wishing she was just a phone call away. It’s hard to know what to do when we are accustomed to turning to mom for advice about anything and everything. She would be the one to tell you how to get stains out of laundry, the best potty-training tricks, how to be a listening ear to an obnoxious teenager and so much more. She was the rock and foundation of your world and now she is gone.

 Throughout the Bible, there are many examples of people mourning the loss of a loved one including Jesus. Although He didn’t lose His mother, He did lose a close friend. He understood our grief and wept.  But there are several examples of mothers dying in the Bible—mostly to childbirth.

Ichabod’s Mother

Before Ichabod’s mother died, she named him based on the grief of the battle that happened around her. Ichabod means “departed glory,” as he was born on the day that the art was stolen and taken into captivity by the philistines. He never knew his mother, but he knew how her heart ached for the Lord and her country.

Joseph and Benjamin’s Mother

Joseph never got to see his mother again after he was sold into slavery by his brothers at the age of 17. Later, he was imprisoned after being accused of something he didn’t do. Later, because of his patience and trust in the Lord, God raised him up as second in command in Egypt, saving a whole nation from starvation—including the brothers who betrayed him. When the family made amends, he was in his 30’s and learned his mother had died giving birth to his youngest brother Benjamin.

She was in her mid-thirties and the labor was intense. With her last dying breath, she named her son Ben-Oni, meaning “son of my sorrow.” But Jacob changed his name to mean “son of my right hand.”

A Prayer for a Family Grieving the Loss of a Mother

Dear Father,

She was a pillar, a gift of love, a treasure to my soul. Always caring, ever kind, and giving, even as she grew old. To me, she was a lovely mum, to you a beloved child. I could only know her a little, you knew her spirit deep inside. Whilst waves of grief break over me, crushing like a storm, You’ve greeted her with a warm embrace, and gently called her home. It’s silent and so empty here, since she passed away, and yet she will hear celebration, called forever into grace. My memories are treasures now, I’ll value, keep and sow, I know she’s taken all her riches, left the chaff, and worn the gold! As time passes, I’ll forget the hurt and pain she bore, For now, she’s free, restored, and peaceful, in your arms forevermore. I’ll let each bulb, each bud, each bloom, sing to me of your love. For you reign in eternity, and I’ll wait for your kingdom to come. Thank you for my special mum, I trust her to your care, we rest in your arms secure and safe, we are both children there.
