This book has stood the test of time and has a wide mainstream following. Many churches give it out as a comfort to grieving family members. Billy Graham wrote an introduction to one of the editions.


  1. Hi Pete
    It is hard to forget the death of a parent especially if its happened a few years back or recently. I struggled with coming to terms with the death of my mum last year in September.
    Believe you me…the Holy Spieit is real…divine comfort is real. You need to pray about it….ask the Holy Spirit to intervene and comfort you as well as accepting it happened. You need to move on and you cannot if youre still holding onto the death of your father. I know its easier said than done but trust me…the peace im experiencing is unbelievable yet everyone knew i was inconsolable when my mother died. I hope it makes sense to you Pete. I pray that you find comfort in the Holy Spirit and in knowing your dad is at peace.

  2. I’m unable to think of anything besides my father dying 2 years ago. I’ve always considered myself a tough athlete type guy and I’m lost and too embarrassed to go for help. Im hiding it from my daughter and wife. Plus. Im 50 years old myself. I need some stratigies please



  3. One of the hardest things we have to face in life is the Loss of a Love one, But Almighty God promises in the Bible at 21:4, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore, The former things have passed away.” 1Corinthians 15:26′ God refers to death as an enemy, and says it will be brought to nothing, so God do not cause death, he hates that we die, but he do allow it, when you have time, read the account of Laz’arus, (John 11:39-44) are you can start at chap. 11 of John, verse 35 tells us that Jesus cried, and he also spoke of the resurrection in verse 25′ so all this show us that Almighty God gave life and can give it back, in his own due time, I also lost both my parents and I’m trying to live my life in a way that I will be able to see them again in that resurrection Titus 1:2 tells us ‘God cannot Lie’ There’s a page call ” Grieving for Dead Family Members” Sandy’ I invite you to go to that page, there you can be a member and find so much Scripture comfort from Loving Friends.

  4. @ Linda. I join faith with you in prayers for Tristan”s mother. She’s daily finding help in God, Amen.

    We just “lost” one of our church ministers, a vibrant 36 year old amazing Christian in July. He passed on while on an official training. He was found dead in his hotel room when he didn’t show up early for the day’s session.
    We were concerned for the wife, parents and the church. Amazingly however, the God of all comfort has done beyond our wildest dreams. We have fits of laughter whenever we remember him.

    Lord, thank you for providing the much needed help for Tristan”s mother and family. Amen.

  5. Prayers for Tristan a young boy from Texas who passed coming from church, in a car accident. His mom is devastated and she was a single mom, with two children.

  11. Thank you very much. Those are kind words and are comforting.

  12. Hello everyone. I’ve been reading through your messages and i share your sorrow.
    My mom passed away in September 2015, on the19th. I had been to see her in June,(in Zimbabwe) where i come from. Previous year i had spent a whole month looking after her, trying to do what i do for some of the patients i look after. She had had a stroke in 2013.
    The news was devastating to me when my brother rang to tell me mum had passed away. I had never imagined life without her and never anticipated it either. I wished i could die and go to be with her.
    My mum had been a widow for 39 years, looked after us on her own and struggled to make ends meet so we could have the life we have now. The journey of her life was not easy. Once we started working we all endeavoured to look after her as best we could. She was happy but things took a turn when she had a stroke.
    I miss her sooo much sometimes i lose myself, just thinking of her. Sometimes i dont know what to do with myself when i think of my mum.
    I cried a lot when she was alive, asking God to spare her life so we could continue showing her our love and appreciation but hey, God can only grant so much.
    We lost her. I pray for her everyday and thank her for sacrificing her life for us. I thank God for giving us a mum like her, never selfish.
    She was 33 when our father died but she vowed to stay with her 6 children. Never married again.
    I miss her.

  13. Dear Sandy,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Your letter could have been written by me. It was spooky. It has almost been 3 years for me and although the crying is becoming less and less I can still cry as deeply as I did in that first year. I even use to text my mums phone writing how much I missed her. Life will never be the same.
    But at least we both had beautiful mothers who were such a big part of our lives. It makes the loss harder but there will be a time when you think more of the happy times rather than the time near the end.
    My faith and my children have got me through.
    Your Mum is still with you.
    God bless

    1. Hello Geraldine:

      You are right it is spooky. I would also text my mom phone and call it just to hear her voicemail. And the sad thing this is not the only thing we had to deal with. My mom used to always say God will make a way. I am trying so hard to believe that because if God didnt bless me with my kids, I would not have stayed here because the pain is sone hard and I am sorry that you have to go through this also. Because it is unbearable.

      Thank you for your kind words. May God continue to bless you and your family.


  14. My mom passed away August 1, 2015. It was a Saturday. I remember that day like it was yesterday. I need help because this is so hard and sometimes I barely can make it. I miss her so much. I prayed so hard for God not to take my mom and I had so much faith that she would not leave this earth. Its so hard to get up everyday and knowing my mom is mot here. We used to talk on the phone more than one time a day. Now I don’t have her anymore and I need her, My brother, my sister, and my daughter need her. I’m so sad.

  15. Dear Paula, I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL!!!! my best friend committed suicide and was not saved either. It is one of the hardest things to go through! It has been a couple years but the pain is still so real and the dreams of her keep me up at night. God will give you peace and rest, He does not let us walk through these difficult trials on our own! ♡ you are lover keep holding on and fighting ♡

  16. My father passed on today. Please email let healing prayers be us. Love

  17. I am sorry for your pain. I am sorry for hers. Even though yours will always be with you until your time, hers has transformed into love, light and peace. God bless you.

  18. I have read many of your stories and they are so heartbreaking, the pain all of you are facing must be so awful, and must feel unbearable. But, you guys all made a difference in the passed aways lives. I know it hurts so much, but time can help mend hurting hearts. Part will always be missing, but it gets easier with time. I promise. God gives you these people here to help you through this trial, and I know from experience that each and every child of God is strong enough to make it through. Keep fighting guys! ♡

  19. Dear Sole, I am truly sorry for your loss.

    We often look at this world and start to wonder what it is that you’re supposed to do with this time we have. Do you build we make we buy we borrow we give we take. I was losing my father I’ve come to see one very important thing in life, the time is precious and if there were things left unsaid to always confront them. In essence the riches of our lives are the families we were born into. Now some may have a Trumatic story with that very sentence, as some families are not meant to have North Carolina for children of this world. But for those parents, for those mothers and fathers who have tried their hardest to bring about every sense of joy they could to their child , Whether through difficulty, challenge, hardships, frustration, whether living in complete financial freedom and trying to but still a sense of humbleness and peace, no matter the race nor the religion beliefs or wants, as long as that mother or father has given a sense of themselves to the child and they deserve the entire kingdom of God. I pray with my heart, through the soul that walks and lives within this humble mortal show that you find and are given all of the piece of your heart. God bless you all

  20. Please pray for my sister and I. We lost our mum to cancer last month. Our dad died 15 years ago and my grandma has terminal cancer. We now feel so lost without our mum. I prayed daily for mums healing but now we need a prayer. Thank you

    1. I will pray for you guys. There is this song along with scripture that i draw comfort from during difficult times. “Trust His Heart” by Babbie Mason

  21. I am truly sorry for your loss. I just lost my father. Loss in any form is heartbreaking. I guess the truth of it is that no matter how much faith we have knowing our loved ones are ok, our lives are and forever will be changed because of one thing, we can’t see them. We miss them. They are with us. Hold that truth close. God bless.

  22. I lost my fiance of 6years on dec 6th 2015&its been the hardest pain I’ve had to bear in a while…..we were going to get married dec 19th but we never made it to the altar,he died right before me&i couldn’t do anything about it……some days I get so depressed while some days I have so much faith&i just want to put the devil to shame…..but in all these pain&hurt I still thank God for his life while he was with me,he was such a good person&i feel blessed to have shared 8years with him.

  23. Dear Lord, please give my mother strength and the rest of our family. We have lost our father and what hurts us is that he was taken away so quickly. He was strong and stubborn and opinionated and at times difficult to be around, but he was the essence of protection and safety. My mothers heart is broken and sad and we sit in anguish wondering why God had called him back so quickly. Forgive me Lord, for I know how many times I asked for peace of my father was no longer here but, but how reality changes, how truth transforms when death has visited your door.
    Forgive when you can.
    Laugh when you should.
    Be fearless when the opportunities arise. Most of all, love each day as if God has given you an hour glass filled with a few precious moments to live. Only then will we find peace and freedom within ourselves and understand that Gods truest intention was not for us to simply become islands unto ourselves, pursuing an imaginary goal of happiness that only comes when you have reached your “until I ”
    Live now.
    Love this moment. Tomorrow is never certain. You do not own nor do you have guaranteed your breath for the morning. What you do have, what is rightly yours to do with at this very instant is to get up, hold the ones you love, tell them you love them, you forgive them and that life is better in the moments of anxt together, than it ever could be in an imagined tomorrow without them.
    I love you dad even though I never told you. I know you loved me, even though you never said it. Your actions were your way as were mine but I would give everything I have , everything that I could ever create, aquire or attain for one moment of having you in front of me, in front of mom and the rest of your children, to tell you “papa we always loved you and we always will”.
    God, I release this pain and this prayer into your hands. To deliver to my father. To tell him how much love there was for him and always will be. God, please give my mother strength and the courage to move forward each day in this new life without my father. All I can do Lord is give to you my grief and pain and allow you to heal me according to your will and please God, take care of my dad.
    His son as yours

  24. Hello Intercessors please pray for my cousin and her family on the passing of her husband, their Dad. She is grieving his loss and is wanting to go to heaven to be with him again also is asking God why. Pray for her faith to increase to believe the promises of God’s words that blessed are those that mourn…… And that earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. Pray that the spirit of depression is far away from her mind and that God direct her to the best Spiritual and Grieve counseling persons. Also, touch and agree that she is will over this season of mourning and that she over come by the blood of the lamb and the words of her testimony. Thanks so much!

  25.

Im filled wth grief,mourning,sadness,anger,regret,guilt and many other things…dont knw wat to do….
