‘In everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that excels all thought will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.’ (Philippians 4:6, 7) In particular, I pray for Jehovah’s spirit to give me strength. When I get really upset, I go to Jehovah and say, ‘I need more of your spirit,’ and he helps me through another day. Sometimes I cannot even articulate the words, but he gives me the strength to go on.” (Romans 8:26)

My heartfelt condolences to your family. It no doubt brings pain when we lose a loved one in death, which is no wonder Jesus likened death to an enemy in 1st Corinthians 15:26. I hope during this difficult time that you can be comforted and strengthened by the words found in Psalm 46:1, where God says he will be your refuge.
