Lord, give me words to encourage her to take another step

Give me words that will illuminate her spirit to take another breath

Lord, wrap your arms around her during this time of grief

Let her find comfort in Your bosom to soothe a pain that’s set so deep

Please mend her broken heart and lift her heavy burden

Help her to put together the pieces and heal her where she’s hurting

Lord, strengthen her daily during this time of sorrow

Either take her hands or carry her, but get her through tomorrow

And when her only form of expression becomes a cry or a groan

please put adjectives to her tears when she can’t find words of her own

And Lord, please give her vision to see the brighter picture

that her child is in a better place now and their life is so much richer.

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. (Psalm 34:18 NLT)”
