The people in the family are left in terrible pain. All of them have a very hard time living because of the terrible pain.
And it's when things are hard that they need your help the most.
Even though words can't fill the hole in their hearts, letting them know you'll always be there for them brings them comfort.
Lord, my arms are empty and I want this son so much. I think about my son all the time, and I don't know how to live. I'm so mad that I lost this son, who still had so much lifeto live.
Help me through this time of loss, and turn my pain back into joy. Show me how to remember the good times without feeling sad all the time. I need you to make up for this loss and prove that you are strong enough to heal. I think you are the Truth, the Way, and the Life. In Jesus' name, Amen.
God in the sky, In my trouble, I'm calling out to you. Help me out of my trouble, because I'm empty and lost. After my son died, I don't know what to do or how to deal with life. I cared so much about my baby that she was my world.
Lord, give me the strength to keep going and the wisdom to deal with what has happened one step at a time. Father, hold me and comfort me, because you are the only one who can give me the strength to keep living.
Lord, thank you for hearing my prayers. I believe and pray in the name of Jesus. Amen. A woman wearing an eyeglass sitting on the floor beside her bed crying
