A Prayer to the God of Grief

God of grief, 

be our light in darkness, 

our comfort in sorrow, 

our strength in doubt, 

our support in suffering, 

our peace in fear, 

our love in loneliness, 

our hope in despair, 

our healing in pain. 


Be for us  

all that this world cannot be: 

lasting joy, 

unfailing love, 

abiding hope, 

enduring peace. 


Help us to trust  

in the hope of your name 

and the promise of your word.
