I apologize for publishing this article over a weekend because I understand how busy everyone is during the week and takes the weekend to relax and spend time with your loved ones.
My amazing grandmother passed away this past Thursday after living a very long and beautiful life, and is now dancing in heaven with my grandfather! But even though I recognize that every life will come to an end, I am still dealing with the loss of my beloved grandmother, and would very much appreciate anyone reading this to please share any prayers with me that have given you comfort during times of grieving for the loss of a loved one, especially a grandparent.
Below I have listed 10 prayers that have helped me deal with grief in the past, but with that said I need some new ones to help me get through this loss.

#8 Best Uplifting Prayer To Help Overcome Grief: Loss And Deep Grief
O God, I come to You filled with hurt and sadness and even anger because of my great loss. Lord, I know that You have a plan for each of our lives, but I am in such pain and grief that it is hard to focus on the truth that You do care and that You have had to face deep grief and loss too. Lord, my hurt and pain runs deep and I feel that my heart is breaking. I ask you to touch my hurting heart.
I know, Lord, that You are the God of comfort and that You have been with me every step of the way. I ask You to draw ever closer to me at this time for I feel that my whole world has been shattered.
I find it hard when people who don’t understand try to say words that they think are comforting but sometimes it makes the hurt even worse and I feel hurt and so very, very alone.
Lord, I know it is true that in time the pain will lessen but please be with me, hold me close and steady me, for I know that without You I could not face another day, another hour.
I keep thinking about that song we used to sing when I was younger, never a heartache, and never a groan, never a teardrop, and never a moan, ever a danger but there on the throne, moment by moment He thinks of His own.
