God seems nearer to us when we are grieving the loss of someone we love. Trusting His Spirit to enable us, we will find ourselves going on, with our strength renewed, one step at a time.


2 Cor. 1:1-10 1 Thess. 4:13-14

Heb. 4:14-16 Rev. 21:4

Heart Issue

In our grief, we are often tempted to give in to anger and blame. But to do that is to forfeit the Holy Spirit's comfort and healing. How do we avail ourselves of God's help? How do we hinder the Spirit's comfort?

Prayer Focus

Father, draw especially close to all those who are grieving the loss of someone special today. May they know Your divine peace, joy and eternal encouragement. Amen.
