Prayer for Widows

A Prayer for Widows

Heavenly Father, most loving and gracious God, You know the pain and sorrow of death, mercifully hear our prayers for those who mourn the death of their beloved. The nights are lonely and the days are too long.

Comfort them and bring an end to the days of tears. Bless them and bring an end to their days of sorrow. Renew them with the joy of life and bring to an end their days of mourning.

Proverbs 15:25 The Lord will tear down the house of the proud, but He will establish the boundary of the widow.

Let the bond of love which You have for Your people be the foundation of their hope that love never ends and that precious moments with their beloved are forever held dear in their hearts.

1 Timothy 5:5 The widow who is really in need and left all alone puts her hope in God and continues night and day to pray and to ask God for help. But the widow who lives for pleasure is dead even while she lives.

Lifting Up Widows

Lord Jesus Christ, we call upon Your blessed name and seek Your intercession as we lift up all widows in our prayers. Torn between their own lives and the responsibilities of family, may they in You ever abide.

Strengthen them, Lord, in Your power and wisdom to lean on You and persevere in their calling. May their love for You, and their love for family and duty, be their utmost importance.

May they lift up all their cares, and place all their hopes, in You as, in fervent prayer, they come. Grant them Lord, a spirit of patience to persevere through their daily toils and disappointments of life.

In times, they need someone to speak their hearts out and someone to love; hear their hearts, O Lord Jesus, and enfold them in Your Love. May they be comforted that in You alone is a peace so deep and real and in You an everlasting love that lives through all ages.

Lord Jesus, we pray for widows who seek a life partner and have children to care for. Help them, O Lord we pray, with discernment and judgement to chose right.

Help them with someone who will truly love, care and provide for her and her children as their own. May they grow in love for You Lord and each other in an bond of marriage and sacrifice for each other, the things that could make them closer, and deeper in a lifetime of love.

Exodus 22 : 22 – 23 “You shall not afflict any widow or orphan. “If you afflict him at all, and if he does cry out to Me, I will surely hear his cry;

Guard and Protect the Widows

Lord Jesus Christ, guard these widows from the evil men and their deceit in lust for flesh. In the pretext of caring and loving, they make use of these widows for their own personal gain and pleasures.

May Your wrath come upon those who lure widows in Your name for evil ways and add grief to their sorrow-filled heart.

Lord Jesus Christ, we pray that we, Your beloved people, love and care for widows and orphans and provide for them in the best they can.

May we realise that providence may not necessarily be in monetary value but through pure love, caring and providing attention in words, thoughts and deeds.

May we all live our call as Christians, live our relationship with You, through caring and loving for those who are underprivileged, in this pursuit of orphans and widows.

May our thoughts be pure without deceit and malice, may our love be Your light, shining in their path, giving them a life hopeful, joyful and peaceful. In Jesus’ Almighty name, AMEN!

James 1:27 Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
