Item description for Praying Through Our Losses: Meditations for Those Who Are Grieving by Wayne Simsic...
Overview Grief is the painful process of adjusting to a loss. This collection of meditations is designed for anyone experiencing loss, whether it be the death of a loved one or the loss of health, financial security, or relationships. Each reflection focuses on a different topic, moving readers from acknowledging pain and loss to healing and new life. Using Scripture and prayer, Simsic gently shepherds readers through difficult issues like forgiveness, shock, depression, and the fear of letting go, without ever resorting to shallow sentimentality. This expanded version of the original book, Cries of the Heart: Praying Our Losses, features additional meditations and photographs from nature. A wonderful resource for people going through times of loss as well as for those looking for a gift to comfort family or friends.

Reviews - What do customers think about Praying Through Our Losses: Meditations for Those Who Are Grieving?
"The only way to heal pain is to feel it." p. 41 Mar 1, 2008
Sometimes Christians have a hard time allowing a person who has suffered loss to grieve. The hardest part about grief is that you cannot will it away or cheer it away. This book helped me as a grieving person to pray and find that my grief is allowed.

I had a recent death in the family & a friend gave me this book as a gift. The book really helped me understand the grieving process & how exhausting it can be. It was easy to read & I especialy liked the reference to present day losses(example September 11 & Katrina). Reading the prayers gave me a feeling of calmness & acceptance. It was one of the best gifts I have received.
