O’Heavenly Father, I am now in the shadow of great loneliness. My helpmate has been taken from me. Yet I submit in holy faith to Your divine will. I know that You loved _____ and that they are now in Heaven rejoicing with You (2 Colossians 5:8). Lord, right now I don’t know what to do with the rest of my life. Please lead and guide me in this time of uncertainty. Help me Lord, to seek out opportunities to help those less fortunate than myself so that I can be a blessing to them. Help me to keep from feeling sorry for myself in my present condition. Keep my heart alive with Your love for my neighbor, so I can carry on Your work of love in this world. One day I know I will be reunited with ____ in Heaven, where we both will worship You for all eternity. Amen.
