Ten Ways to Pray For Deceased Loved Ones With One Simple Prayer

By Dave Pipitone

When a loved one dies, it is as if the world ends. Before we receive any sympathy messages, numbness, shock and disbelief are often the first reactions when we receive a phone call that someone close to us has died. As one who cares, you may feel helpless to control or change the situation. How do you express sympathy wishes that show that you care during this time?

Prayer Cards - Business Card Sized

Dealing with death is difficult. Mourning, grief and loss are the hardest things in life that many people will experience. For example, a popular scale measures psychological stress from zero to one hundred. The death of a spouse is rated as the most stressful – a measure of one hundred at the top of the stress scale.

Condolence words may can be difficult to find or compose, especially when a death is completely unexpected. Offering prayers to remember a deceased loved one and support family and friends is a comforting way to be present at this time of loss.

The process of grieving is very normal after a loved one dies. After a grandparent, parent, child, relative or friend is gone, you have a different relationship. There is no such thing as a typical loss. Long after the funeral, it is common for a survivor to experience yearning – wanting to see our deceased loved one again – and soon.

The stark fact of life is that physical death happens to everyone. A religious Christian faith believes in a better life for eternity – a home with a loving God forever.

A simple prayer can change your heart and mind as you cope with the loss. Here are ten things you can do just one simple prayer:

  1. Find a prayer and write your loved one’s name on it. Carry that prayer with you in your purse. Every time you go shopping, say a prayer for your loved. one.

  2. Give a simple prayer to a grieving husband, wife, mother or father. Having a prayer to say yourself is a good thing; helping others who are grieving is even better. We make better companions in life when we share each other’s burdens.

  3. Use a simple prayer card for a bookmark in your Bible or favorite book. Especially if you write a loved one’s name on the prayer, you can recall him or her when you are reading and say a quick prayer.

  4. Make a small shrine with a simple prayer and a photo of your loved one. Find a favorite area where you might sit and drink a cup of tea, water or coffee. Remember that your loved ones are right there with you and then offer the prayer to remember their presence.

  5. Put a prayer your wallet and and look at it often. A wallet often carries money, which is precious. But not as precious as your loved one. So, when you pull out money, remember the real valuable thing in life – your love of your loved one.

  6. Place a simple prayer on your night stand. That way you can say the prayer when you get up in the morning and before you go to bed.

  7. Tuck a simple prayer in your jacket pocket so that you can pull it out and pray it during breaks at work. There is always time to remember and break up your day by saying a prayer for your loved one.

  8. Display the prayer in your vehicle, so that you can read a prayer when you are stopped in traffic. Your loved one’s life stopped unexpectedly at the intersection of life and death. Remember her when you are waiting for a red light to turn green.

  9. Pray a simple prayer together with your family during morning or evening prayers. A family that prays together, stays together. Your loved one is on the other side, praying with you, too.

  10. Share the prayer with family members and pray before meals to remember your loved one’s presence with you as you eat. Meals are a wonderful time to share love and news of the day. Imagine your loved one right there with you at your kitchen or dinner table.

A simple prayer sends sympathy messages that your deceased loved ones are at home with God when time is done. All you need to do is to find a prayer that you can adapt to pray all ten ways for your deceased loved ones.
