Prayer Book for Widows



Dear Father,

As the anniversary of our wedding draws near, I pray again that You hold my husband in Your gentle embrace. Share with him the endless joy of knowing You. Shower him with Your love and grace. Remind him, if it be Your will, of my undying love for him.

These days are sometimes hard for me, as memories of our sweet vows wring my heart and tears flow silently. As I walk this earth alone, I ask You, please, for grace. Give me courage, Lord, for in my weakness You are strong. I have placed my faith in You.

O Lord, I pray that on the day my journey ends, and I come home to You, that my beloved be there waiting, too. Reunite us for all eternity in Your everlasting love. Until then, I wait in hopeful faith and pray to You. Amen.

This is a prayer book like no other, written by a widow for widows. The prayers center on the emotions and situations a widow faces. It is a powerful resource for grief ministers, family members, and friends.
