Prayer for the loss of mother

(a prayer of comfort for a grieving son or daughter)

I loved her as mom,
You love her like a child.
I miss her every day, O Lord
You’re with her now, in heavens hold.

I grieve the loss of the one I loved,
You dance for joy as your girl comes home.
I feel the sadness of her passing,
You celebrate her as your own.

I sometimes glimpse your eternal plans
You see everything, so clearly.
So Father God come oh so close
As I miss my mother dearly.
Amen

May the Lord bless you
and keep you
in this time of sorrow,
reminding you of
treasured memories,
and the gift of shared love.
May he inspire you
with the reflection of heaven
in earth, from the seeds
and flowers,to the mountains
and springs. And may
you feel the Lord with you,
walking besides you in the
loneliness, taking your hand
in the hardest times and
carrying you through
the waters of grief. May you
be safe and treasured in his hand.

Amen.

Holy Spirit, please encircle me,
Come hold me safe and secure.
Wrap my mind up with your truth
Guide my thoughts and calm my fears.
Steady my emotions,
Lord that you would guide my feelings,
May I not be overcome by upset.
Sustain my soul,
With vision for the future,
And hope for tomorrow.

I need you.

Amen.
