This blog came to me during silent prayer last Wednesday morning:
I will never forget this awful time, as I grieve over my loss.
(Lamentations 3:20; NLT).
1. I pray for all
Who live with loss,
Who, daily, must take up
Facing their heartbreak,
And their tears,
And their fears.
2. I pray for all
Who live with grief,
Who bear their cross
Facing each trouble
On their own,
Clinging, Lord God,
To you, alone.
I cling to you; your strong right hand holds me securely.
(Psalm 63:8; NLT).
Verse 1: I eat ashes as my food, and mingle my drink with tears (Psalm 102:9; NIV).
LORD, see my anguish! My heart is broken and my soul despairs (Lamentations 1:20; NLT).
I have cried until the tears no longer come; my heart is broken (Lamentations 2:11; NLT).
Verse 2: O God, let the voice of my grief come to your ear (Psalm 64:1; BBE).
My grief is beyond healing; my heart is broken (Jeremiah 8:18; NLT).
My wound is severe, and my grief is great. My sickness is incurable, but I must bear it (Jeremiah 10:19; NLT).
I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul Psalm 31:7; NLT).
Is not all human life a struggle? (Job 7:1; NLT).
Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world (John 16:33; NLT).
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted (Matthew 5:4; NIV).
