Lord, my Creator and Sustainer, why did it have to happen like this? Why did it have to be our beloved one? I am so empty on the inside, Lord. I don’t know how to face each day, dear God. Please, Father, remove this hurt that is growing in my heart. Replace it with your unconditional love. Help my family and me to understand that it is because of the deep love you have for our beloved that you have ushered them into your presence. It is in Jesus’ name, I believe and pray. Amen.
