A Prayer for Turning Over Concern of Dropping a Beloved One 
By Heidi Vegh

“There isn’t a concern in love, however excellent love casts out concern as a result of concern entails torment. However he who fears has not been made excellent in love.” – 1 John 4:18

The considered dropping somebody we love may be all-consuming. We take into consideration the loss and the way a lot it might damage, and we cringe. We let fear take over our hearts that tragedy may strike at any second. We hear tales about fluke accidents that take youngsters or spouses too quickly. We witness family and friends and strangers within the information face devastating loss and really feel excessive reduction that it’s not us, however we concern that in the future it will likely be. We consider the lie that if that occurred to us, we couldn’t survive. We really feel as if we might fall over lifeless on the information of such profound loss. 

Dwelling in these fears is a strategic tactic of the enemy to steal our pleasure. The enemy’s sole agenda is to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). He desires us tousled in fear and consumed with ideas of the worst. He desires us misplaced in concern a lot that we will not benefit from the treasured moments with the folks round us. When these ideas eat us, we should take them to the Lord. We should rebuke the enemy’s lies and ask God to fill us with a peace that solely He can present. Jesus presents a peace that runs so deep that we are able to say, “Even when” the worst occurs, I can be okay, and God won’t ever depart me or forsake me (Hebrews 13:5). Once we can permit ourselves to get by means of the worst-case state of affairs and picture ourselves on the opposite aspect, that’s the place we are able to discover peace. 

This implies utterly surrendering our fears to the Lord. Utterly surrendering our family members. We belief that He’ll meet us in that deep ache and provides us the power to outlive the loss and watch Him work all of it for good. (Romans 8:28). I witnessed this firsthand after I watched my husband die from most cancers at thirty-three, leaving me alone with two young children. During the last decade, I’ve seen miracle after miracle as God has given me the power and talent to rebuild my life. I can see God’s hand working in all of the grief and ache, bringing me to the opposite aspect. This isn’t to say that I do not nonetheless grieve my loss and undergo its penalties, however God has proven up so powerfully in my life that I can not deny His presence with me each step of the best way. 

Let’s pray:

Lord, please defend the those who I like most. Shield their our bodies, minds, and hearts. Shield them from illness, accidents, and damage. Encompass them with a legion of angels. However at the same time as I pray, Lord, I’m afraid. I’m so petrified of dropping the those who I like probably the most. The concern consumes me, and fear overtakes my ideas. I want your peace, Lord. I have to belief you even when the worst-case state of affairs turns into a actuality. Please assist me know you higher, belief you extra, and stay a life freed from concern. I need to stay in your excellent love, a love that casts out concern (1 John 4:18). I need to stay a joy-filled life full of objective and pleasure. I rebuke the enemy who desires to steal the time that I do have with my family members. I rebuke the concern that grips me. I rebuke the lies that I couldn’t survive the loss. I rebuke the concept that I’d crumble and my life would flip to shambles if I misplaced a cherished one. I belief that even when I lose a cherished one, you’ll work it in your good, finally bringing magnificence from ashes and flowing streams of dwelling water within the deserts. I selected to stay in your peace and pleasure in the present day. I selected you over concern, and I selected in the present day your guarantees over the lies of the enemy.
In your treasured identify, we pray, Jesus, amen.
