How awful that someone would neglect your heart like that. I will offer that I have relatives in the emergency services and they see so much struggle, injury, and death that they get desensitized to it. I think that is what you experienced. But I want to thank you for the a wonderful testimony I hear in your post. The joy you had with him to the very end. So many relationships just fall apart under that stress and for even less. You just told us with your words how much you loved him, and what you described is how much he loved you. He did not let his fate prevent him from expressing that love to the end. Your love strengthened him and he was strengthening you to the end. As for what happened in the mortuary, don’t let them undo what your husband offered you, reassurance resting in the love he left you with. I offer what Jesus taught us about that. Your husband was not in that body anymore. Jesus said of the moment that our soul leaves the body, “Wheresoever the body is, there will the vultures be gathered together.” Think about how horrible it sounds that our loved one’s body might be subject to vultures, yet Jesus reassured us, we are gone from that vessel. He also said, “Fear not those that after they have killed the body, they have no more that they can do to you.” Your husband was not in that body anymore. Trust Him. They did not hurt him. You will see your husband again. He promised.
Enable me to rest beside Your still waters of refreshment and sleep in Your arms of comfort give me I pray that peace – that perfect peace that only flows from You to those that have their mind stayed on You.. Keep my heart and mind focussed on Jesus I pray and help me not to be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and supplication makeing my requests known to You – with a thankful heart.
A prayer for peace may be used to petition God for world peace or for personal inner peace when your own life is troubled. The world’s long history has been full of wars for land, power, and even in the name of peace. Most civilized people want an inner peace toward happiness and care-free lives. The Bible provides verses addressing both issues with the promises, instruction, and prophecies of God.
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
I was recently given this prayer by an Eastern Catholic deacon. I love it because it is a prayer of abandonment and trust in God for the daily details in our lives, and expresses well how much we need His help to live each day well. It has become a new favorite prayer to recite in the mornings as I begin my work day. I hope you benefit from this prayer as much as I have!
Gathered together on this page are a number of resources that remind us of God's love and comfort in these difficult times. There are prayers for those who are experiencing great loss and bereavement, a video on finding God's comfort in grief, and bible verses about God's consolation and reassuring presence. There are also prayers for families and friends who are in mourning:-

Hi Sonnie – I have been in yer shoes & I am still grieving the loss of 4 dear friends from suicide … this all happened to me in 5 yrs – it’s an awful ordeal to have to go through . Some days are better then other’s it seems . Prayer & my Faith in God have helped me – being open & honest about what a wreck I am emotionally with friends & family has been a gift I give myself . The healing process is long … I have wept – I have felt guilty – I have been very angry – but God has been there for me every step of the way . I have come to the conclusion that my dear friends were just too sad & weak to hold on to this life . Nothing I could have said or done would have made a difference . God only knows how long our lives will be on this earth . It was His choice to take them to Heaven . I want you to know that I am sending Love & Healing Prayers to you – I hope that in time you will heal – give yourself lot’s of TLC – {{{{ hugs <3 Blessings }}} Just me – Norene a friend who cares ~ 🙂

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

I have not been feeling ok especially in terms of feeling guilty and was troubled yet I always wake up in the morning and pray even when retiring to my bed at night. It all started when I got to my workplace and was destructed by my colleagues whom I found not in a very good mood. I thought to myself that maybe I did not do well but could not figure out how it happened as I was rejoicing in the morning on my way to work.. The prayer has helped reminded me of the Love our Saviour Jesus Christ has for each and everyone of us and how we should always remember him and keep him in our minds and do the right things at all times. Thank you.
I would like to thank the contributing team that makes sure our requests are prayed for. I made a request during the middle of this month and the lord has answered. I asked him to have my boyfriend contact me before Christmas. The results did not happen the exact way that I asked for in my request i.e. I am the one who contacted him on Dec 27th, 2010 but I do realize now that my prayer to talk Read More...

Dear Lord, God, Above all Gods, You are our Father, and I know that you watch over your creation. This is your world. Earth is your footstool. We on earth are people you created. Lord, when we feel depressed and confused over all that is happening around us, help us to remember that You are there . You comfort us and fill us with your peace. Let us know that you are there in the storms , and the storms of our lives. Calm our fear, and give us peace. When we are hurting, and sick, and we don’t know what to do, please be with us, and give us patience to endure the pain that we are dealing with. Let us remember that Jesus suffered on the cross for us, and our suffering is only a portion of what He suffered. Let us remember to think of you when we suffer ,and think of Jesus , the Son. You care for us, because I know that you are loving, kind , and good. You are wonderful, our teacher, our hope, and our lives depend on You. You give us breath, life and truth. Thank you Jesus, and the Father , for taking care of your children. Save us from the evil one. Amen

"But I say to you that hear, love your enemies; do good to those who hate you; bless those who curse you; pray for those who abuse you. To those who strike you on the cheek, offer the other also; and from those who take away your cloak, do not withhold your coat as well. Give to everyone who begs from you, and of those who take away your goods, do not ask them again. And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them."
Giver of all grace, we pray your peace, which passes all understanding, for us who are developmentally disabled. Grant that we may always be sustained in love, our gifts honored, and our difficulties understood, that none may add to our troubles. We ask this in the name of the one who comforted those who were troubled in mind, Jesus our Savior. Amen.

71. Jesus, you took it all away, the sufferings upon the cross a remainder of the thoughts you have towards me, from my sorrows and all my troubles I have come to you with a heart of thanksgiving, away from the distractions, away from it all I have come to find your peace and comfort. I receive both your peace that assures and your overwhelming comfort upon my life in the name of Jesus. Amen
