This is so similar to the prayer I picked out for my mothers prayer card at her funeral. I never knew this was a Native American prayer for the grieving. Being part Native American, I see I picked the right words
Psalm 119:28 (NAS) My soul weeps because of grief; Strengthen me according to Your word. https://www.facebook.com/OurPrayer/photos/10155573425746703
The only people I can answer that question truthfully is another mom with the same situation. Even family members you sometimes lie to in case they may be having a good day. So many layers with this kind of death.
