Prayers for Difficult Moments

Advent Day 17:

Prayers for Difficult Moments

Not every part of the holidays is happy for everyone.  Here are some prayers to help you with those difficult moments.


When Things Get Busy:

When things get too busy and it seems as if we have no time, we pause.  
We breathe in.

We breathe out.

We give thanks.

Help us to look for moment so fpeace and calm in the middle of all the busy moments.


For Those Who Are Lonely:

For those who are alone - 

May they not feel lonely this day.

May they know we are thinking of them.

And may they feel the Spirit, who is never far away.


When We Are Grieving:

God, this season is hard because we miss loved ones {name}, who are no longer here with us.  Let us remember that it's okay to be sad.  It is okay to miss them.  It is okay to grieve.  It is also okay to be happy and celebrate, knowing that things are different without our loved ones. Meet us where we are, whatever we are feeling, and help us to have peace within. Amen.



When Family Leaves:

God, we thank you for the gift of family and for the gift of a visit.  As they leave to go home, we offer up our prayers.  We thank you for the good times we had together. We look forward to seeing them again soon. We ask you to bless them and us as we are apart.
