Dear Lord, I want to believe that you will bring me through this time of sadness and loss. I want to have confidence in the fact that I will smile and even laugh again.
I understand that hope may be grasped in different ways as we proceed on our life’s journey. I believe that you want me to be filled with abiding peace, unconditional love, and eternal joy.
I am currently in a deep valley of sadness. Help me to hold on to your promises of everlasting joy and peace as I walk holding your hand through this dark valley. I know that you will never leave me, nor forsake me.
In your loving name. Amen.
A Blessing for You
May the LORD bless you and take care of you;
May the LORD be kind and gracious to you;
May the LORD look on you with favor and give you peace.
