Praying for the Dead

Lewis writes that "I have always been able to pray for the dead, and I still do, with some confidence. But when I try to pray for H [as he calls Joy Davidman in this journal], I halt." And this feeling I well understand. The beloved is so much a part of ourselves that we do not have the perspective of distance. How do we pray for what is part of our own heart? ~A Grief Observed by C.S. Lewis
