Prayer for the Grieving
« on: September 18, 2015, 10:34:18 AM »
Does anyone know of a prayer to be said for one who is grieving the loss of a loved one?
I have always found the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom to be so much more moving in the original Ukrainian.

I'm sure someone else might post some appropriate prayers.  Personally, I'm not aware of any, other than what I might pull out of the funeral services.  Usually, I recommend people read the Psalms.
