Prayer for Grieving Mothers

Updated on April 19, 2016
Lord God Almighty,
 
Everything in this world happens for a reason
 
Every drop of rain that falls, every sunshine that kisses the earth
 
Nothing is coincidental,
 
Even the shortest sneezes of angels
 
For everything is under Your will
 
 
 
Yet nothing could be more painful
 
Than for a mother to lose her child
 
To see the person she has nurtured
 
all these years...
 
Without the vigor...
 
Without breath...
 
Without the unconditional love...
 
That once gave life to his body
 
 
 
The turmoil that crumbles her mind
 
The unimaginable pain that tears her heart apart
 
The permanent loss of her ultimate love and joy
 
All hopes and dreams have been lost to
 
a most undesired death
 
 
 
Heal their hearts with Your precious hands
 
And wipe away their tears of untimely sorrow
 
Help them put themselves together
 
Reaffirm the faith that is now being shaken
 
 
 
With Your Sacred Heart,
 
spare them from that most painful day...
 
With that one final chance to see her child
 
before the earth devours
 
When all the mourners are gone...
 
When collective consoling ends
 
And the life-long grieving begins
 
 
 
She hears the piercing silence
 
As reality sinks in
 
And all she has are precious memories
 
...Their generous exchange of love and affection
 
...The times of misunderstanding, of healing and reconciliation
 
...And the missed chances that will never return
 
 
 
I pray to You Oh Lord, that no mother will ever have
 
to go through this darkest journey
 
Of defying the natural order of life
 
Through the worst agony of burying her child
 
 
 
Give them the strength to stand once more
 
Show them a dint of hope in this time of despair
 
Pick the pieces of their broken heart
 
So that they may learn to accept
 
Life's fateful turns and bittersweet surprises
 
And maybe one day, do what a mother does best
 
- to love like there's no tomorrow.
 
 
 
I humbly raise this simple prayer
 
for every grief-striken mother's heart, AMEN.
