The prayer of the grieving.

Lord, please heal my heart, but not so much that I don’t hurt,

For if I don’t hurt, how will I remember.

Lord, never let me forget the pain,

For if I forget, how will I know your blessings

Lord if you choose to fill my arms, still let them ache just a bit,

For if they don’t ache, she will be forgotten.

Lord walk with me through memories,

For without you there, I might only look at the negative.

Lord show me just enough of your purpose in my pain,

That I may be content with the path you have chosen for me.

Lord, open my eyes to others that are hurting,

So that I may be your hands of comfort to them.

Lord, make of me what you will,

So that this pain is not in vain.
