The passing of a dear loved one, is a difficult experience for family members. Sorry for your loss. It is through the privilege of prayer, that a bereaved family can experience God’s love and comfort in the most intimate way. May you all find comfort as you pour out your hearts in prayer, to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is the hearer of prayer and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4; Psalms 65:2.
