Grief Relief Prayer and Meditation


Grief Relief Prayer

Holy Lord
God above
Bless us in our hour of need
Hold us in your Sacred Heart
Ever close, dear Lord, to Thee.

When our grief
Seems just too much
Show us by your guiding light
How to find again once more
The purpose of this mighty strife.

Shelter us
When in our gloom
Let us rest within your love
Find strength, find hope, find peace again
With you forever, Lord above.

These hours
Seeming darkest now
Will shine in new born freedom
On those who turn to face the Light -
Feeling Godís love gives us the reason.


The trials of grief grip our lives in body, mind, emotion, soul, till spent along their natural course, and we once more rest within our Source.

For comfort while in griefís grip a quiet meditation practice can gradually ease the pain and lead to longer periods of harmony.

Meditation

Begin by choosing a private place where you will not be interrupted. This could be your bedroom, a secluded spot in your garden, on a bench in the park, or along a stretch of beach.

Sit upright, hands folded in your lap or palms up or palms down on your thighs. Close your eyes. Breathe deeply in and slowly release your breath.

Now begin a pattern of even and regular breaths, such as one count to breathe in and one count to breathe out. Continue this rhythmic pattern throughout your meditation.

Pay attention to your breathing as if you are observing someone. This gives you a space to remove yourself from the grief you are holding in body, mind, emotion.

Try to maintain this observation for at least five minutes to give your system time to re-synchronize in a harmonious pattern.

Take time to think with appreciation on at least one positive aspect of your life, send loving thoughts out to your family, friends, the universe.

Finish your meditation with a deep breath in and slowly release it. Open your eyes. Enjoy the calm you are feeling for as long as you can. Stretch out and go on with your day taking this peace with you.
