A prayer for those who are grieving

Holy One, we all have experienced times of grief and loss.

We bring those memories to you.

Heal us and teach us compassion for other who also grieve.

We offer our prayers in gratitude for your continuing love for each of us, especially when we feel lost.

Heal us, loving God.

Teach us, loving God,

the serenity to accept the things we cannot change,

the courage to change the things we can,

and the wisdom to know the difference.

  1. A note to Joan: Thank you so much for the prayer this morning. It came at a critical time when Doug is saying goodbye to a loved dog (not his but his daughter’s) and more than that, a dear dear Navy friend who was the best man in his 1st wedding. Doug’s heart is so heavy with grieving, Peter, and other Navy friends. Your words soothe the soul with offering to the Creator Spirit who is aways with us. Mary Louise
