QUESTION: Can you give me an example of a prayer for comfort?
God is our comforter. In times of trial, anxiety, and depression He desires to comfort us. May our hearts be open to comfort the sick, the dying, the depressed, the lonely, the homebound, the defeated, and those who need the love of Christ.
The God of all comfort comes to us as we pray and seek Him with all of our heart. He is there when no one else seems to care. While we were still sinners, God gave us His Son, the greatest gift. His only Son saved us from destruction and eternal death.
The Comforter has come. “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).

Even though my heart is heavy with grief, I want to praise Your holy name. You are an awesome God. You spoke and the world was created. I give You all glory and honor for who You are. I worship You alone.
I thank You that you know my pain and sorrow. Your Word says “as a mother comforts her child, You comfort us.” I ask that You be my comfort today. Help me to sense Your presence and Your peace.
Help me to reach out and comfort others as You Father, have comforted me.
In Jesus name, amen.
