Although grieving is a natural process which can be helped by the support, sympathy and understanding of family and friends. However, family and friends may be experiencing feelings of grief and loss themselves and therefore may not be always be able to provide support.

PRAYER IN TIME OF BEREAVEMENT
Lord, you are close to the broken hearted.
Be with me now in my grief and loneliness.
Give me the courage to face my loss and not to grieve in silence.Be with me as I struggle with many different and painful feelings, Ease the hurt in my heart.
Encircle me in your love, Help me to believe that one day I will no longer have this deep sorrow.
May I find comfort in sharing my grief with those who understand the strong bonds of love.
Stay with me, Lord support me. Help me to know that your power is at work within me as I deal with my grief. Amen.
