Section 5 Building Your Relationship With God - 20 Special Prayers

14. Consolation Prayer

This is a prayer God gave to a friend who was deeply grieving the tragic loss of a loved one. God initially gave the message in Filipino, and then translated it in English. So, I take it to mean that this prayer, although given to someone, can be prayed by anyone who needs God’s consolation.

Savior of the world

  • Sign yourself with the cross

  • Tell me all your woes

  • Say Matthew 11:28-30

  • Pray three Glory Be.

I shall lighten you up.

Consolation Prayer



  • SAY MATTHEW 11:28-30
    Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for your selves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.

  • Pray three Glory Be


Meaning: When this sculpture was given, to explain its meaning, God gave a Filipino song, “May Bukas Pa” (There’s still a tomorrow) by Rico J. Puno. To listen:

I asked God for an English song that would be its equivalent, He gave the song “The Morning After” by Hirschhorn, Joel / Kasha, Al.6

“The Morning After” is the theme song to The Poseidon Adventure movie, which is about the SS Poseidon, an aged luxury liner that on her final voyage is overturned by a rogue wave. This means that this a prayer for those who feel wiped out by a tragedy(ies) in their life.

To listen:

There's got to be a morning after,
If we can hold on through the night,
We have a chance to find the sunshine,
Let's keep on looking for the light.

Oh, can't you see the morning after,
It's waiting right outside the storm,
Why don't we cross the bridge together,
And find a place that's safe and warm.

It's not too late, we should be giving,
Only with love can we climb,
It's not too late, not while we're living,
Let's put our hands out in time.

There's got to be a morning after,
We're moving closer to the shore,
I know we'll be there by tomorrow,
And we'll escape the darkness,
We won't be searching any more.
