Dear Lord, I never expected to outlive my child. It’s not right, and it’s not fair. This loss affects so many people. I don’t know how to move on. I ask you to give me good memories of our life together. Help me trust you with the painful circumstances surrounding my child’s death. I want to glorify you, even in my pain. Show me how to do that and protect me from bitterness. Give me a new purpose for living and a way to honor my child’s life. I trust you, and I honor you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
