Prayer for the Day
Friday, 16th April
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is his faithfulness. Lamentations 3 v 22,23
We bring before you this day all who are suffering the loss of a loved one. We pray for all who conduct funerals, for funeral directors and all who share in the responsibility of ensuring that the bereaved are cared for. Comforting God, the pain of losing a loved one is very hard indeed, especially as one seeks to adjust to life without them. We pray that the deceased rest in your everlasting arms and those who are bereaved will be comforted by your unconditional love.
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
