I can’t imagine what my life would be like if I lost my husband, and I have only been married for about five years. I wouldn’t know what to do with myself and hope this never happens, but many are experiencing the death of a spouse. They are trying to put the pieces together and go on with what I can imagine is a huge hole in their heart.
Today we pray for them, those who have lost a spouse and feel alone. Maybe they have young children and are trying their best to comfort them while also being strong. They are organizing the day-to-day and returning to work while attempting to keep their emotions at bay. I ask that we gather near them and lend a helping hand whenever possible.
“Lord, I come to you today knowing you are in control of all things, and you give life, and you take it away as you see fit. We may never understand why you do what you do, but we know and trust you work all things for good, even the sad and painful events in our lives. I pray for widowers who are dealing with the death of a spouse. May they find people who are willing to help. May you provide them the grace and peace which surpasses all understanding. I pray they remain faithful to you, even under these circumstances. I thank you and pray this in Jesus’ name, amen.”
“You shall not mistreat any widow or fatherless child. If you do mistreat them, and they cry out to me, I will surely hear their cry, and my wrath will burn, and I will kill you with the sword, and your wives shall become widows and your children fatherless.”Exodus 22:22-24
