Comforting bible verses for the loss of a loved one

Isaiah 25:8

Comforting prayer for the loss of a loved one [grieving prayer]

 he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove his people’s disgrace from all the earth. The Lord has spoken.

Revelation 21:4

Comforting prayer for the loss of a loved one [grieving prayer]

‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’[a] or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

1 Corinthians 15:54

Comforting prayer for the loss of a loved one [grieving prayer]

54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”[a]

Comforting prayer for the loss of a loved one.

For the lord will wipe away tears from your eyes.

Death is inevitable.

If you have lost a friend, brother, sister, mother, or father, you must understand that it is the “will of God.”

God sees everything and has allowed the death of your loved one to happen.

Without God’s permission, there is nothing the devil can do.

So, in this trying moment, we must think differently and understand that God has a different plan for us.

God has promised to bless the faithful with eternal salvation.

He has promised to wipe every tear from our eyes.

The scriptures say,

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

So, why should you cry and mourn like one without the hope of salvation?

Why should you grieve, as you will never meet your loved one again?

God has had a plan to reconnect us back to him.

Through Christ, God has given us hope for salvation and eternal life.

Therefore there is no hopelessness in Christ.

If we continue to serve God with all our hearts, soul, and might, we will be saved.

Neither death nor affliction can separate us from the promise God has set before us.

So, today, we will ask God to strengthen our minds and thoughts.

We will Ask God to teach us His word.

We will also ask God to strengthen our inner being to deal with our current losses.

Comforting prayer for the loss of a loved one- let us pray.

There is a time for everything,and a season for every activity under the heavens:a time to be born and a time to die,

Affliction shall not rise the second time.

In times like these, we must understand the devil’s plan.

He seeks to cause unhappiness and sadness in our lives and our families.

His main aim is to disconnect us from the love of God.

But we must pray that another evil will not befall our family members or friend.

We will ask God to protect us in everything that we do.

We do not want to lose anyone in our family anymore.

So, at this moment, as we seek strength and hope.

We must arm ourselves with God’s armor.

The scripture says,

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Therefore, we must be vigilant and see beyond our current persecutions.

We must be focused and not lose sight of the plans of the devil or our enemies.

We must seek God’s help quickly to protect us from danger.

Fear not; I am with you.

If we have asked for strength, we must pray that God takes away our fears.

Of course, we are worried about the vacuum death has suddenly created.

We also worry about the potentially devastating consequences of losing someone important to us.

And we may also be worried about other evil plans of the devil.

But in all these, we must build up our faith.

The truth is, when faith increases, fears disappear.

We must trust God again.

We mustn’t let death or other persecutions affect our relationship with God.

Right now, we must trust God and understand that he has good intentions.
