Honest prayer – it’s time to grieve

I am especially pressing into my Hope as I continue to pray for my friend who has just entered palliative care today. And even though it hurts, I know where he is headed, and Who awaits with open arms & the words, “Well done, my son.”

I also continue to pray for his loved ones as they accompany him as long as they can. For their journey has been almost 20 years of navigating cancer and all that comes with that word. They have done so bravely, with huge faith, and humour.

How I carry grief will not look like how you carry it, and that is okay. I lose my words when I am weighed down with grief, so bear with me if I don’t post much right now. This is my second friend in 3 weeks to be crossing into heaven and I am allowing myself the space & time I need to process, remember, grieve and come alongside the families left behind.

  1. I sincerely identify with your post today and understand your grief process. The Covid-19 death of my husband, two sisters, my uncle & his wife (my auntie) all within twelve months is still staggering. Praying for you, your friend, and his family 💙🙏🏼
