Where are you? A prayer for persons who are missing
We lift our eyes to You Heavenly and Most Gracious Father, from where our hope and help comes – You, the maker of heaven and earth. Today Lord, we cry out to You on behalf of those persons who are missing. We, their family and friends anxiously and patiently await their safe return or just to hear news of their whereabouts. Even though You said be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let our request be known, it is heart-wrenching not knowing where our loved ones are. We feel so overwhelmed and helpless. Give us the peace that surpasses our understanding so our hearts can be guarded from negative thoughts Lord. You said You would never leave us or forsake us, so we continue to trust and hope in the mighty working power of the Holy Spirit. We trust You Lord Jesus for the safe return of our loved ones.
Abba Father, You are our Great, All-knowing God, All-powerful creator of the universe, and You know that our loved ones are somewhere out there needing to be touched by the Holy Spirit to find their way back home. If for some reason Lord they are being held against their will, we command the abductors to release them unharmed in the name of Jesus Christ!
Father, You said whatever we ask for in pray, we will receive once we believe and have faith. We declare today Lord that we continue to stand strong in faith, believing that our loved ones are safe and will come home. Until then, wherever they are Almighty God, cover them in the precious blood of Your Son, Jesus Christ. We pray they find grace to survive whatever ordeal they are facing right now. In the name of Jesus, we thank You for Your everlasting mercies, SO BE IT… Amen and Amen.
