LOSS & DEEP GRIEF

(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. Utter A Prayer

a) God has established prayer as the means by which we receive his supernatural help. And without supernatural help, we cannot live a life worthy of the gospel. Everything that distinguishes Christians from the world in a Christlike way is a work of God’s supernatural grace. God has ordained that this grace flows to us through prayer.

b) Maybe you have never prayed to God yourself. Or maybe you’ve prayed for years, but have a hard time knowing why. Most of us sense the desire to pray, and even want to develop a better prayer life, but we don’t know what to pray for. 

c) Here is a prayer you may be looking for and desiring to pray...

2. Loss And Deep Grief


O God, I come to You filled with hurt and sadness and even anger because of my great loss. Lord I know that You have a plan for each of our lives – but I am in such pain and grief that it is hard to focus on the truth that You do care and that You have had to face deep grief and loss too. Lord my hurt and pain runs deep and I feel that my heart is breaking – I ask you to touch my hurting heart.

I know Lord that You are the God of comfort and that You have been with me every step of the way and ask You to draw ever closer to me at this time for I feel that my whole world has been shattered.

I find it hard when people who don’t understand try to say words that they think are comforting but sometimes it makes the hurt even worse and I feel hurt and so very, very alone.

Lord I know it is true that in time the pain will lessen but please be with me – hold me close and stead me, for I know that without You I could not face another day – another hour.

I keep thinking about that song we used to sing when I was younger, never a heartache, and never a groan, never a teardrop, and never a moan, ever a danger but there on the throne, moment by moment He thinks of His own.

Hold me Lord I pray, and keep me moment by moment…
Moment by moment I am kept in Your love,
Moment by moment I’ve life from above,
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine,
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine

Thank You Lord that You are my God, Amen.

“My whole being is shaken with terror. And You, Lord-how long?” (Psalm 6:3)
