Prayer Can Help

When the pain of loss grips us we need help.  We reach out to friends, family and to our ministers for comfort and understanding.  Learning to cope with the loss of one we love is a process that can take months and even sometimes years.  Faith and hope is essential to get through it. 

Consider the following excerpt from the Care Notes Publication.  It is titled “How Prayer Can Help You in the Days After the Funeral” by Joel Schorn:  “The days after the funeral of a loved one are some of the most difficult of your life.  First you had to endure the death.  Then you had to go through the funeral, which was probably just as hard.  Now you have to face the days and weeks ahead, when feelings of sadness, shock, fear, and a new kind of loneliness are your daily companions.  Where can you turn at such a difficult time? 

You can turn to prayer. One of faith’s most enduring messages is that God is with us always.  By praying we remind ourselves of this.  Especially at this time God will draw close to you, says the psalmist: “The Lord is near to the broken-hearted.” (Psalm 34).  And so it’s possible to pray your way through these most difficult days. “

 There are many references in scripture about how much God loves and cares for His people.  Take your grief to God and look up from whence cometh your help. 

(Woods-Valentine Mortuary as well as other funeral homes, can refer you to local ministries for prayer.  We also have bereavement literature and information regarding local grief support groups.)
