Prayer, songs and scripture helped us through this time. (and continue to help us)
Lord, thank you that your word says that you are close to the brokenhearted because I can find comfort in knowing that amid my deepest pain, you are with me whilst my heart is breaking. Thank you that I don’t need to feel guilty for my pain or the tears that I am shedding.
In my pain, I ask that you help my heart stay soft towards you Lord, please help my heart not become hardened through my loss. Want to draw closer to you, not away from you.
Please heal what’s broken, comfort my weariness and restore everything within me that’s been lost. I feel empty, and I ask you to fill me back up again. I do not know how to get through this, so I ask you for strength where I am weak, comfort for my sorrow and hope for my future.
I pray that you continue to keep my husband united to you and me, and as a family, we remain open on honest with how we feel.
Most importantly, Father, I pray that you can turn mine and my families pain into purpose, this test into our testimony, and this mess into our message. Please use us to glorify you amid our suffering; use us to point others to the cross. 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, I will help you, I will 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.
