For Rick Warren’s Family and All Grieving

Our church today prayed for Rick Warren and his family and for all who are grieving. Two prayers for the grieving today:

Grant, O Lord, to all who are bereaved the spirit of faith and courage, that they may have strength to meet the days to come with steadfastness and patience; not sorrowing as those without hope, but in thankful remembrance of your great goodness, and in the joyful expectation of eternal life with those they love.  And this we ask in the Name of Jesus Christ our Savior.  Amen.

Almighty God, Father of mercies and giver of comfort: Deal graciously, we pray, with all who mourn; that, casting all their care on you, they may know the consolation of your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Thank you, Scot. It’s prayers the Warrens need now, and not the editorializing that many are so prone to do in the wake of suicide.
