I hope this post can remind you that it is ok to grieve and cry out in despair. However, it is my prayer that you can also feel God’s presence throughout it all. May it be a comfort to you to know that we serve a loving and merciful God that hears the cries of our hearts and is waiting with His arms wide open.
Prayer: (Replace me/my for we, us, our if you are praying it together with your husband/partner)
Father God, help me to see where my heart has gone cold, hard, and dry. I pray for a softened heart, an unselfish love, a compassionate spirit towards ourselves and all the medical staff. I thank you for Your holy presence, the love and gift of Jesus! Help me experience You more deeply. Holy Spirit, I pray for Your wisdom and guidance in my heart, but also in the hearts of those around me.
Please help me find peace and acceptance and move forward, leaning in on you for healing, strength, and guidance. Please help me see past my season of weeping and have hope in the season of joy that is to come. Please help me to glorify you above all else, and may your power be perfected in my weakness as I grieve and heal.
In Jesus name, I pray, amen

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed (afraid), for I am your God; I will strengthen you, help you, and uphold you with my righteous right hand.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
For it is you who light my lamp; the Lord, my God, lightens my darkness.
