Death of Baby Boy tonight


#1

Please pray for a family whose little boy was born premature last week. Initially they thought he would be okay even at 1 lb 2 oz. … He developed complications and died this evening …

He was baptized and is now in a better place. His parents were only able to have a few short days with him, they need much prayer to see them through the grief and loss.

His grandparents, too need our prayers …

Thank you …

Jesus have mercy on this family who have lost their longed-for son and grandson. Please give them comfort, courage and faith. Please keep their relationships strong and mutually supportive in their grief and loss, and in facing the future together.

Loving God,

It is often very difficult for us to understand your ways, but you are the Way, the Truth, and the Light. Help the light of your comforting and holy presence to be with this family as they suffer and mourn the loss of their son. Bless them as they move forward as a family and help them to cherish the time they had with this beautiful child they will meet again in heaven. Take this child into your arms and may our Blessed Mother Mary comfort this child. Help all people who interact with this family in their time of suffering have the wisdom and grace to say things that help and make the family know they are cared for and loved by many.

Father, teach us to see Christ in the lives we touch, to offer him living worship by love filled service to our brothers and sisters. Help this family to remember the love of this child who was with them for such a short time and be inspired by the warmth of this love. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
