“The first weeks after the funeral can surely test anyone’s faith. Praying in the midst of overwhelming sadness is difficult, but it’s a choice that you can make. And you’ll be glad you did,” writes author M. Donna MacLeod. In this CareNote, she offers some opportunities to pray that can help the reader find consolation during those first few weeks with sections titled: Praying during the foggy moments, Praying when you feel empty inside, Praying when you are exhausted, and Praying when nobody understands.
