PRAYER FOR COMFORT AFTER DEATH OF AN ADULT CHILD

by JOY
(IL, CHICAGO)

Please pray for comfort for my family and I. I just lost an adult child (21yrs old).

Pray for God's peace and consolation at this traumatic period. He was murdered.

Administrator Comment and Prayer:

Joy,

My heart goes out to you in your horrible loss. There are really no words to offer that can make the pain go away. We will certainly join you in your prayer for comfort and peace during this time.

If you haven't already found the trauma healing section of this site, there may be some information there that is helpful to you. It is especially for this type of traumatic loss. The main thing is to know that a variety and mix of strong emotions are normal. There is also information that can help if you feel you have an trapped emotional energy inside. You find this section at Trauma Awareness and Healing.

Prayer for comfort that you might use:

This prayer is adapted for you from Joyce Rupp's book Praying Our Goodbyes: A Spiritual Companion Through Life's Losses and Sorrows.

"I take my son by the hand and lead him to you, God of love. Here is _________ (name). Accept my love and thanksgiving as I entrust him into your loving care. I want him to be free to be at home with you. I ask that you save a place for me there beside him and that you be my loving presence in all the lonely moments that await me. I ask that you fill me with motivation and energy in the days ahead when I feel like giving up; remind me often of my true homeland when I am caught up in the desolation of the journey. Help me to find joy in the people, events, and the beauty of nature that surround me.

Thank you for the gift of my son in this life. I want to believe that we will celebrate the treasure of our love again, when we are both in your presence forever. May this truth sustain me in the days to come. Take my sad and aching heart and comfort me. Comfort me, for I can only feel hollowness and emptiness God of the sorrowing, draw near! Amen."

My prayer for comfort and peace for you:

Comforting God,

You have promised that you are near to the broken-hearted. We ask that Joy and her family might sense your peaceful presence with them in these days and weeks ahead.

May they find comfort as they remember the happy memories they shared with their son. May they find comfort and glimmers of hope even as they look to the future.

May they sense your arms of love holding them.

Amen

Emptiness in my life
by: Mark

I lost my son today. Years of self medication with alcohol. Doctors prescribing Adderall...for a mis diagnosis. Pain was all he knew from puberty. Now he is pain free. Please Lord... accept his troubled soul and give him comfort.

Loss of my Son

27 June 2017

I lost my son on the 27th June 2017. He was suffering from cancer of the lyphmnodes. He was 36 years old. He suffered so much in the last 3 months of his life. I miss him so very much. I cry every day for him. I wish he could come back to us. He was an amazing son. I pray and speak the word of the Lord daily to get strength for each new day.

Lost my grandson/son & mother within 2 months 😭
by: Tootsie Santos

I will never forget the morning that my ex-daughter in law called me to say to please go check on her son he was only 19 years old cause she had just talked to him & heard a gunshot. I ran to his bedroom just to find him laying on the floor with a puddle of blood. He got got a little after midnight went to my bedroom to let me know he was already home & told me that he loved me & goodnight. I then heard him arguing with someone on the phone & I thought I will ask him in the morning who was he talking to. Then I heard him open his bedroom door & then silence. I then hear a noise like if he had dropped a book on the floor NEVER in my mind did I think it was a gunshot otherwise I would have screamed or jumped out of bed. Then I get the call & just to experience something horrible. I don't wish anyone what I went through. I am also mourning my mom's loss she passed on June 19,2 2017. My mother had been diagnosed with dementia months before but passed from a heart attack. I pray but when will I feel better I don't know. I try to be happy & pretend to look happy to look strong for others but I am just torn, torn, torn. I sometimes feel like so weak without any strength. I know he wouldn't want me feeling like this nor crying because he'd sing a song to me saying he just wanted to see me smile when he'd catch me crying for my mom. But like they say no words help maybe just with time I hope so.

A presence gone
by: Rose

My grandson committed suicide 3 months ago. Five years before he was shot in the head, left to die, by another teen he thought was his best friend. That info. came from the streets, the gangs! After being shot, he was never the same. He was tortured day in and day out by a mind that didn't work, guilt, due to how he treated his family, nightmares that robbed his sleep, and a constant fear of being shot again and dying. Eventually his nightmare ended. It left the rest of us void of everything except sorrow.

Ashleigh
by: Anonymous

I lost dear Ashleigh two years ago.

She had much pain in her life and lost that life with painkillers provider by doctors.

She was a light in any room. People loved her and she was kind and unbelievably supportive.

Pain, she felt too much and used those prescriptions to take it away. She did not realize that they could be fatal- she thought that the doctors knew best. She is missed each and every day. I always thought that I would grow old living near her and now she is gone and I just feel a huge hole in my being.

Death by suicide
by: Anonymous

I lost my precious son, Wil to suicide June 12, 2017. He was 40 years old and left behind a wife and a beautiful 14 year old son by a previous marriage. My son was not perfect, but he was generous, kind, loving, funny, and had respect for humanity. He was loved by many and always there for those in need. He came home from a business trip with his wife. I got a text from him as soon as the plane landed and later talked with him on the phone. He sounded happy and as I hung up the phone, I felt so grateful that my children were doing so well as adults. The next morning I got the phone call from his wife saying that he had tried to hang himself. I cried and prayed so hard that God would let him be OK. In a few minutes, I called back and she told me that he didn't make it. The pain was, and still is, unbelievable. I know that God is with me and when I am at my lowest, I cry out and he hears me. I am surviving, but even with God by my side, it is a slow and extremely painful process. I cannot imagine what this experience would be like without a merciful God to hold my hand and lift me when up when I am drowning. I know that I will always have a huge hole in my heart that belongs to my son. I also know that he would want me to. I pray for peace and comfort for my family, myself, and all those grieving over the loss of a loved one.

My only child/son
by: Anonymous

On February 12, 2016, My worst nightmare came true. A knock on our door, our only son killed in an auto accident. He was our entire world. All dreams came to an end that night. We will never see him marry or have us grandchildren. I know he is with sweet JESUS! We miss him every second of every day. He was 26 years old. Loved GOD and all people everywhere. He was such a blessing even in the tough days. Always full of hugs and kisses on the cheek. I MISS HIM SO MUCH! Will never understand why we lost our only child. MISS YOU and wait for Dad and I on the other side.

Lost my adult son 18 months ago
by: Donna

Scott was a blessing to me, my husband, his sister and brothers, and many more people. He was a hard worker that accomplished a lot in his life. He was very athletic and played baseball, professional hockey, worked out, hiked and kept himself physically fit. He watched what he ate and would warn us about eating chips and cookies. Scott graduated from college and worked hard as a Federal Agent.
He lived on the West coast and was very welcoming to us, where we would stay for as long as we wanted. He worked midnights and would come in bringing us coffee and a breakfast sandwich. He went out of his way to treat us so good. We would always have long conversations about almost anything. We would laugh and talk about what was going on in the world. Scott would worry about his father and even bought him a BP machine to check his BP. He was my son that I talked to hours before his death, which was alone. He was in a good mood and told me he was feeling better, but died of a heart attack.
Scott was a person that was an example of good health, but was told by the doctors he was having panic attacks, but it was heart palpitations. His EKG was normal, just months before. God has a great person in heaven with him. Miss and Love you Scott..Mother

My greatest pain..my greatest lesson
by: Patton's mom

My beautiful son left this earthly realm on November 12, 2014 at the tender age of 24. He taught me life's most important lesson....all we need is love and to share our time with our children while they are young and to never take each other or a day for granted. Thank you for the beautiful prayer. I do entrust his existence his life into God's loving hands. I ask God to heal his pain and I know he is being comforted and now feels the love he never felt in his earthly existence. I was proud of him. He did so much for so many and I always was complimented on his manners and kindness. His father had nothing to do with him and I loved him like crazy but I also loved my career and how being a leader made me feel. I also was an extemely codependent to his step father who had no remorse when he died. My son was to fragile for this world but he changed lives while he was with us. He helped so many people get into his line of work which was lucrative and life changing. He always paid for his friends whenever they went out. He loved animals...especially his pit bull named Miley Mae who is scared of cats until she gets to know them! He loved his Mustang GT and EDM melodic music. He was very responsible and get nervous if his light bill was mailed out on the due date and not before. He never called in sick and worked nights. My life is forever changed. It has been hard to keep on going and it's only me and my 12 yr old son but Patton is still with us in our hearts and we include him in our lives in every way we can. We speak his name throughout the day and I know my brother was there to welcome him home and what a reunion it will be to hold him once again.

We lost our son Burke six months ago. He was almost 24 years old. Everyday I think about all the other parents in this world who are suffering the worst thing a person can suffer on this earth. Everyday is the most horrible struggle. I just thank God for my faith because without it Im not sure I would be able to make it through this loss.

As you pray for your lost children, please remember to pray for the comfort and peace all the grieving families of this world.

Grief Struck

I lose my son Feb. 10, 2017. He helped so many people in his life but he couldn't save himself from the addiction of alcohol. He became so distraught that he hung himself, while the police sat out side of his apartment, after getting a call for help. I will never get over this, its killing me. I don't know how to go on with life. Everyday it seems to get harder.

My Beautiful Son

My son was born on Valentine's Day and he passed away 6 days after his 34th Birthday. My son struggled with drugs and it caught up with him and killed him. He was so full of life. It has been one year now and I am still having a hard time living without him. I loved him so much. He h ad so many friends and he was always helping others. His father and step on turned against him and that hurt him deeply. I never could turn my back pin him. I hope he is in a better place without so much pain.I hope to meet him again.

To My Son!

I lost my son Jeffrey on January 27th 2017.
My heart is broken knowing that he was so depressed and took his life and I could do nothing to save him; as much as I tried. He left behind a 2 yr old son; who will never get to know his Daddy. It beaks my heart and am trying to look past the pain and find comfort knowing that he is ok and not suffering anymore.
....IF LOVE COULD HAVE SAVED YOU JEFFREY
.....YOU WOULD HAVE LIVED FOREVER!
I Love and miss you so much!

Mother of Corina
by: Elaine

Sadly, I am so familiar with the pain of each mother or father here who has commented on their losses. I am sorry for your pain and loss.
I too have lost my child. My 26 year old daughter took her own life in May 2009 after a breakup with her boyfriend.
---Initially I was in shock- could not concentrate, cried ALL the time. It took 3-4 years before I could "feel normal" again. It changes your "normal" forever.
I have to say that I would not have made it without my faith. The scriptures have been a great comfort to me during the most painful times or mourning- like this one: Psalms 73:26 My flesh and heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

My son passed away
by: Rosalie

My son passed away suddenly in July 2017 and my sister in October 2017. My husband and I go through so many emotions. It is like waking up to the same nightmare every day.

I feel close to God, and some days I feel his strength and love.
Other days I can barely get through.

I would appreciate your prayers and insights.

May he rest in peace

My precious only son John died on Dec 1 after a 2nd courageous battle with brain cancer. He was a light for the world and salt of the earth. He was kind, caring and compassionate towards others for all of his 38 years.He leaves behind his wife and 3 darling kids. He has no more sadness, nor sorrow and no more symptoms and now has unimagineable happiness. Nonetheless, I will miss him with every breath for all the days of my life.

I lost my beautiful son Joshua of age 23 07/19/2016
by: Anonymous

Joshua was a loving child and I miss him so much. The day I recieved the phone call I was in France and I felt completely helpless, all I wanted to do was be back in the USA instantly. I still can't believe he won't be coming back from college, this was his last semester and he was so happy school was coming to an end. He had many struggles through his teenage years and I truly thought his problems were behind him. He was as strong as an ox going to the gym everyday. I was in total shock when I was told he went to sleep and didn't wake up. He had a lethal dose of alcohol and prescription drugs which ended his life and my life will never be the same again. I miss you so much Josh and you will be in my heart forever.

LOST MY SON
by: Anonymous

I LOST MY ONLY SON ON MAY 13t, 2016. MY SON WAS AN AMAZING EXTRAORDINARY MAN LOVED BY MANY. HE WAS A PROFESSIONAL. HE TURNED 32 A MONTH PRIOR TO HIS DEATH. THIS IS VERY HARD FOR ME TO SAY DEATH. I FEEL HIM SO CLOSE AND I CAN NOT AND WILL NOT ACCEPT THAT HES GONE. HE WAS GOING TO BE A DAD A MONTH LATER. HE PASSED BY DOING WHAT HE SO MUCH LOVED, DIVING. HE WENT DIVING ABOUT 80 FEET DOWN WITH NO OXYGEN, NO BREATHING EQUIPMENT, JUST HIS MASK, HE BLACKED OUT DOWN THERE AND SUNK . I CANT ACCEPT HIS LOSS. I HAVE HAD EXPERIENCES AS I HAVE FELT HIM BESIDE ME. I HAVE HAD DREAMS WHERE HE WANTS TO TALK TO ME. I KNOW WE WILL BE TOGETHER SOMEDAY BUT FOR NOW IM DEVASTATED. I CANT DEAL WITH HIS LOSS I JUST CANT. I WANT TO HUG MY SON SO BADLY AND TELL HIM HOW MUCH I LOVE HIM. I SOMETIMES ASK GOD, WHY, WHY DID YOU TAKE MY SON. I KNOW GOD HAS A REASON FOR EVERYTHING BUT WHY WHEN HE WAS GOING TO BE A DAD? I NEED SOME TYPE OF GRIEVE COUNSELING. I ONLY HAD HIM FOR A FAMILY AND I LOST HIM. I KNOW HE CAN HEAR ME WHEN I PRAY SO FOR THE TIME BEING I WILL TALK TO HIM AND TALK ABOUT HIM BECAUSE I WANT TO KEEP HIS MEMORY ALIVE AND I WILL.. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO, WHO TO TURN TO AS I DONT HAVE ANYONE. BUT I WILL KEEP HIS MEMORY ALIVE UNTIL MY TIME HERE ENDS AND I JOIN HIM IN HEAVEN. REST IN PEACE MY PRECIOUS SON. YOU WERE SUCH A WONDERFUL MAN AND IM PROUD OF THE SON THAT GOD CALLED TO HEAVEN. WAIT FOR ME HONEY BECAUSE MOM WILL JOIN YOU. I LOVE YOU JESUS. D.O.B. 4/3/84- 5/13/16

I also lost my son May 7, 2016 and he was also 23 years old
by: Mary S.

Lisa,
I had to comment when I saw your post. My son Will was killed in a car accident also on May 7th and he was also 23 years old. I came to this post, because I'm not sure how to pray now. My faith is still strong, I'm just stuck on how to pray. Since my son was very small I would fall asleep praying for him, his safety, his future wife etc.I prayed all the time. I feel like my prayers where unanswered. I know we live in a fallen world, and I also know God could have saved him, but he didn't. That is where I struggle. Do I pray for safety for my other child. Why? It didn't help with my older son? I know the pain in losing a son. You are not alone. I'm glad you are turning to your church and hope you will find comfort there.

My only son took his own life on 4th May 2016, I still can't understand it and I am so terribly sad every day. He suffered depression due to trial drugs for all his medical conditions and it drove him mad, so mad he shut everyone out his life. The only peace I have is he is not suffering anymore and that he believed in God and I knew he would have peace.

Nothing harder than losing a child
by: Anonymous

I lost my son in Nov 2015. He struggled through so many things. But each time he would keep on smiling. He worked so hard. He loved people and felt as one with nature. He had a horrible abusive wife but kept trying because he loved his two children. I know God has him and he no longer has to face hardships, but there are no words for the emptiness. So many times,I ask God why he made life so hard for Scott. I look forward to spending good times with him. I love you Scott.

My Beloved Son, Joshua Elijah Saville
by: Linda

December 2nd my 32 year old son walked out the door never to come home again. He said he had a bad feeling that if he went something bad may happen. Why did I let him go? He struggled with addiction and mental illness. The cops encountered him later that afternoon and had him transferred to the hospital. He was high. They pumped him full of sedatives and let him wander out of the hospital in the middle of the night in the freezing cold wearing only socks and boxers. Less than 10 hours later he was found dead in a creek 2 blocks from the hospital. Dear Jesus, take care of my son until we're together again.

I lost my only child Jan 28, 2015 He was 19 Yrs old.
by: Anonymous

It is indeed the hardest trail that I have ever been through in my life, not a day goes by that I don't think about my son . I loved him more than anything on this earth. God blessed me with him and he was his to take back. I just pray that he continues to hold my hand as I go through the remainder of my life. I can't do this without God. Just let me feel his presence from time to time, the beauty of his smile, the tightness of this hugs. I miss him so, but God knows best. My baby, just know I always love you..... Glory be to God for the grace and love he shed on us, and he always take care of our babies and children in heaven.

I lost my son to addiction
by: LAURA Fisher

Benjamin Michael Fisher was a loving person. He died May 22 2014. For a year I woke up every morning angry that God didn't take me the night before. Today the good memories are starting to replace the bad. I am able to remember him for the person he was and not his addiction and the devastation it caused our family, his death. I still have some very bad days. I pray for all of us to find the comfort we need to go on. His last gift to me was to not fear death because he will be there waiting to take me Home. Love you my Benny!

My 21 year old son
by: Mark

My wife and I lost our son to a car accident on June 23rd, 2015. He was in the prime of his life about to graduate from college and was a starter on his football team. He was talented, loving and generous to those around him. Everyone has shown us nothing but love and respect since his passing. However, he was our first born and the hole in our hearts seems to have no boundaries. We look to the Lord for comfort at this time as he has him in his loving hands. Our life has forever changed. We miss him and love him and wish we could have one more moment with him.

Almost 5 Agonizing Years Gone
by: Anonymous

My 21 yr old son died November 2010. It has been a long walk with grief. Five agonizing years. I wonder if the wound will ever heal. It hurts but knowing other people care, helps ease the pain. Looking forward to a reunion in heaven.

Lost of son 3 months ago
by: Anonymous

I can't begin to tell anyone about the hole in my heart. I miss his laughter the most. He had a wonderful way of making fun of what upset you with out making you feel bad about it. I miss him and most of the time I want to sleep so I can dream about him. I'm hoping prayer will help heal me but I sure feel like I am heading to a nervous breakdown.
