    Praying for the family.

    Lord, hear our cries and our broken hearts. Losing a loved one is never easy, it feels as though we have lost something irreplaceable. However, we find comfort in knowing that the last enemy to be destroyed is death! Death cannot defeat us, for we are made alive again in You. Lord we rejoice knowing that we will be reunited with our loved one again, we also give You praise for allowing them to find rest in You, Amen.
