A Prayer for the lost
I come to you today with a prayer for all those who are lost.
For all those who have been beaten down by the selfishness of others.
For all those who have seen too much and can't forget the pain.
For all those who have been told they were useless...that their sins were too great...that nobody would...or could ever love them.
For all those who are sinking in the pit of discouragement.
For all those who have been blinded by hatred.
For all those who think their failures are fatal.
For all those who have looked for peace in alcohol, drugs or sex and only found more despair.
For all those who are searching for something...for anything...to make them feel like they have value, that they have worth, that they belong in this world.
I bring them all before you today Lord. I ask you to heal their broken hearts. I ask you to clear their cluttered minds. I ask you to remove all evil influences in their lives.
Lord, I pray you become so real to them that they see their wounds are a way to reach others who are lost. I pray your peace gives them a reason to keep pushing past the darkness so that more than one life might be saved from the lies satan has led them to believe.
Lord, I pray you put just the right people in their path to help them believe they are not alone...that they do have a purpose...that they are loved.
And when today slips into tomorrow Lord, I pray this very prayer again, for all the ones who find themselves among the lost and alone.
In Jesus Name I pray.
