Praying for you today

Today I am praying for you who have experienced the death of a child. The pain you have experienced is more than I can imagine. I wish there was something I could do to minimize your pain. My prayer for you is threefold.

First, that God would comfort your heart. Lean heavily on your heavenly Father. He knows exactly what you are going through. He experienced the death of His Son. In John 3:16 we find the words, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Please know He knows and many people are praying for you today. We are praying your sorrow is a bit less.

Second, look forward to the day you can see your child again. When King David knew in his heart a child of his would soon pass from this life, the Bible records he mourned for many days. When the child passed he said, “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me (1 Sam 12:23).” David knew his child was safe in heaven and he looked forward to the day he could see and be with his child again.

Third, pray for others who are experiencing what you have experienced. You know what they are going through. In 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 we find, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

I am so sorry you have experienced this. May God be with you in a special way today.
