5 Prayers for the Dying: How to Pray for Your Loved Ones While Grieving

By Marissa Zimmet on 6/30/22 11:08 AM

Tragedy and death are unfortunate and inescapable human experiences. But, we can find hope in scripture and in prayers. That's why we put together a list of prayers for the dying, prayers for those in hospice care and prayers for the family members left behind. We hope that these prayers give you hope, comfort and facilitate the grieving process when experiencing loss.

For more encouragement and comfort when grieving the loss of a loved one, in addition to these prayers for the dying, we hope you'll watch the newest AFFIRM original and Pure Flix exclusive "Going Home" now streaming. "Going Home" is a show about loss, but it's equally about hope that has been described as "uplifting, lighthearted and healing."

What Does The Bible Say About Change? Scriptures on Change To Help With Times of Transition

By Marissa Zimmet on 6/27/22 4:00 AM

We’re often fearful because change can be out of our control, unsure of what’s in store for the future. Luckily, as Christians, we know that one constant source of encouragement is the Bible. We can turn to scripture for Bible verses about change in order to find comfort and peace during times of transition.
