The Empty Chair Prayer

Dear God,
There‚Äôs an empty chair at our table, an ache in our hearts and tears upon our faces… We try to shield one another from our grief but we cannot hide it from you… We pray for…(name your loved one) whose presence we miss in these homecoming days… Open our eyes and our hearts to the healing, the warmth and the peace of your presence… Assure us that those we miss have a home in your heart as well as in ours and a place at your table forever… Open our hearts to joyful memories of the love we shared with those who have gone before us… Help us tell the stories that bring us close to one another and to the ones we miss so much… Teach us to lean on you and on each other for the strength we need to walk through difficult times.
Amen.
