A prayer for an unknown family

We learned this morning that one of the babies that our nurse was assigned to passed away. My heart is so heavy for the loss of this child's future and for the grief that the baby's family is surely enduring at this moment and will probably carry for quite some time, likely forever...

Lord, please accept this baby with open arms in heaven and allow his or her family to find comfort in knowing that all of the baby's pains and physical stresses have been eliminated.  Help them to have faith in your presence and to find your peace that passes all understanding. Amen.
