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.

comforting quote for prayer from John's Gospel

Sympathy prayer for loss of a loved one
(such as a father or mother)

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.

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,

Sustain my soul,
With vision for the future,
And hope for tomorrow.

I need you.
