Brothers and sisters are the closest to us. We grow up with them, and even if we do not get along sometimes, there is a strong bond between us.
It is often in the home where we learn to obey the Bible and in particular verses such as Ephesians 4:32, which tells us, “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”
We learn what unconditional love is and can forgive any disagreements. It is, therefore, devastating when a sibling is taken from us through death. A sister’s loss can tear out our hearts, but remember that God is as near as a prayer.
Before you start, save these prayers when spreading ashes.

7) Comforting Bible Verses For Death Of A Sister
“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”Psalm 23:4
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?”John 14:1-2
It is so wonderful that God left us a book with every kind of help in any need. He gave us His scriptures to bring us comfort in times of grief.
It is therefore important to do as Joshua 1:8 says:
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”
Before you leave, also save these prayers for family unity.
Should I Pray for Someone Who Has Passed Away?
Praying for someone who has passed away is an individual choice. Those who pass away depart the earth in spirit. You therefore have a choice of whether you want to pray for them or not.
The Bible says this in Isaiah 25:8. “He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces.”
Can I Ask God To Help The Deceased To Rest?
Sometimes, people have not completed a task on earth. When death occurs suddenly, it is important to ask God to intervene. Rest is for the righteous.
As it says in Proverbs 14:32, “The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: but the righteous hath hope in his death.”
When Can I Start Praying the Prayers?
It is even more important when we face a crisis, such as the death of a sibling, to pray immediately. God appreciates it when we honor Him with our deepest and most heartfelt requests. You can therefore start praying at any time.
Are These Prayers Really Miraculous?
Know that these prayers are miraculous. As Matthew 19:26 says, “But Jesus beheld them and said unto them, With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
If your sister passes away it can break your heart into pieces. It is one of the deaths that we often do not expect and that is often overlooked.
However, we can find comfort in God and His Word. Pray to the Father to touch your heart and restore your soul. As Psalm 23:3 says, “He restoreth my soul.”
When it comes to God, we are never left to fend for ourselves
