In beginning your prayer, pause for a few moments to set aside distractions. Breathe deeply and be aware of God’s loving presence within you.
Luke 15:32 “He was lost and has been found.”
Lost keys, lost eyeglasses, lost papers. Finding these things brings a moment’s relief. Lost direction, lost passion, lost relationship. Finding these things is a lifelong task. We lose, we find, we lose again. But do not fear; even when we are lost to ourselves, we are always in God’s sight.
(Pray using this prayer or one of your own.)
You seek me constantly, O God. Grace me with a heart that can hold on to your will for me and discard my self-agenda.
