Prayer for December 5: Please pray with me. God of the lost, today we pray for all who are lost. It can be scary to be lost – to not know where you are, what you believe anymore, who you are, who you are called to be. Comfort the lost, guide their steps, and let us walk along side them as you bring them along on the path of their lives to you. Sometimes Lord, we need to be lost too – to recognize that we are not in control of our lives. Help us in our times of being lost to reach out to you, not so we can claim control over our lives or over you, but rather, to receive what we need most – you. You walk with us and so many times we are blind to seeing you. Open our eyes to seeing you in our lives and close our eyes to our determination to run our lives as we wish. Amen.
