About six months after my husband's death.

Prayer For Healing

Father, when will You make the pain go away?
Will it be with me always?
Am I expecting too much, too soon?
Will I ever feel love & joy again?

Sometimes in this deep valley of grief;
I have been able to see brief glimpses
Of happier times ahead, and sweet memories
Of past joys, without pain.

But more often, I'm just taking one tentative
Pain-filled step at a time through the fog of my pain;
Praying for the strength to take the next step,
And terrified of taking it.

Father, help me to remember,
That no matter what happens, You are in control.
You know my fears, my doubts, my future,
And You will be there with me.

Thank You dear Lord, for Your promises,
To never leave me, or forsake me,
To supply all my needs,
And to give me strength to do anything.
