Dear Lord: I pray for inspiration in these trying of times. I am in need of understanding why we must grieve the loss of people who were dear to us, people who were much too young to have passed away. It is not ours to question why God takes the lives of those who have entered our lives and these beautiful people exit, whether it be due to cancer, others are murdered and yet others feel the need to commit suicide. I draw upon my deep faith to understand why these things happen. I can only continue to pray for drawing inspiration from the beautiful memories I have of those individuals we were fortunate to have known. May the perpetual light of mercy shine brightly upon their faces and may they rest in peace.
