Prayer for May 11: Please pray with me. God of Sorrows, today we pray for all who have lost loved ones. You know the pain and sorrow that goes with death, oh Lord, having watched your Son die. We know you walk with us through the valley of the shadow of death. Help those who mourn and ache for their loved ones to feel your presence beside them through friends and family who comfort and console. There are no words to express the sorrow of such a loss. But there is your comforting touch that will strengthen all those who mourn to carry on to the next minute, the next day, the next year. You cry with us, you mourn with us, you carry us to you. Amen.
