O Lord of Joy, I am drowning with sorrow, I am sinking deep in pain, and the issues of life are about to drown me. Answer me, Father God, because of your great love, comfort my heart and help me to accept what has happened. As we lay my husband to rest, help me to find strength in you, and to find refuge in your wings of love. Lord, I will praise you with songs even when it is hard, I will proclaim your greatness by giving thanks to you. Thank you for answering my prayers. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
