Priscilla Presley Thanks Supporters After Her Daughter’s Death: ‘I’m Truly Overwhelmed With…Your Prayers’

By Movieguide® Contributor

 Priscilla Presley, wife of the late Elvis Presley, recently expressed her appreciation of the love and support the family received in their time of grief following the death of their daughter, Lisa Marie Presley. 

In a Thursday, January 27 Twitter post, Priscilla wrote to fans and supporters: “To YOU, I’m truly overwhelmed with your words, your prayers, your love and your support….Thank you from the bottom of my heart in trying to help me get through this loss. Every parent who has lost a daughter or son knows what a dark painstaking journey it is.”  

Movieguide® previously reported on Lisa Marie Presley’s death:

On Jan 12, 2023, Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of Elvis Presley, died after suffering cardiac arrest. She was 54.

“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla Presley said in a statement. “She was the most passionate strong and loving woman I have ever known. We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers.”

The news came after Priscilla Presley confirmed that Lisa was rushed to the hospital earlier in the day on Thursday.

The Presley family certainly has been supported in their loss, and our prayers go out to them as well; but it is of the greatest importance to recall that the only immovable support that one can be given in the face of life’s tragedies, the death of a daughter included, lies in the all-sufficiency of the Lamb of God and “the prayers of the saints” (Revelation 5:6-8).

Mentioning the prayers of many as a source of help in getting through grief, Priscilla Presley hits on the one thing that can bring true comfort and consolation – communication with the Original Communicator (Justo Gonzalez, A History of Christian Thought, p. 240) through prayer. 

As we pray for this family’s grieving process then, let us also pray that the Presley family will not just “get through this loss” but will turn their eyes to the one who is able to “wipe away every tear from their eyes” (Revelation 21:4). 

Presley previously attended the Movieguide® Awards Gala and was honored for her work on ELVIS PRESLEY: THE SEARCHER.
