praying for the living on the six months anniversary of my father’s death

Reflecting on how to pray for my dad’s six-months-anniversary since his death. At first I was overwhelmed with sadness, couldn’t think or come up with words. I googled prayer for the dead. But I realized I’m praying for the living. How to pray for/on my father’s 6 months anniversary is with love, gratitude, peace, and sadness. And the passage below is helpful. Quoted below in Message version of the Bible.

“Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.” (Message version, Romans 8:26)
