To: Chantel/Wesley/Family & Friends
God, bring comfort and peace. Peace is your essence. Peace is your name. Bring peace to the family/friends and I whom has lost our precious child in death.
I come to you, God because I know that you sorrow, and are acquainted with grief. You too have endured the loss of a child. You empathize.
I can’t help but ask, “Why?” Forgive our insistence, our confusion, even our anger. I believe that you are just, and we ache to understand how this tragic death is an expression of that justice, how it expresses your love. We also know ... in our minds at least ... that you seldom answer the “why?” question. We press you, but on these matters you are mostly silent.
What I ask instead is “how?” How can we move forward? How can this bring us together and not tear us apart? How can we now live under the shadow of this untimely death? Please God answer my prayer with your comfort and guidance for all the family.
There is no way to remove the pain. The grief is real. The only sanity is to know, to believe, in a life beyond with you, when all the scales are righted and the sufferings are made good. We trust you and your promise that while this child’s life on earth is done, her life beyond has just begun. With that release we lose her and let her go into your arms, then by faith ... receive in return the boundless comfort of your presence. In Jesus name I Pray...AMEN ... Thank You God for being with us in this time of need. AMEN
