The Search Prayer

Lord, there are a great many people who are searching for you and trying to find a place for you in their lives. Others are trying to renew their faith in you, to rediscover your love and grace and keep it forever. I am part of these many people who need you. Please be with me throughout my search and renewal of faith in you. Your love is unconditional and will help the road ahead seem easier. Help me to put my trust in you, to rely on you in times of need and to share with you my times of joy. Help me to know that you will always be there for me, for this Search, the fourth day, and all of the other personal searches I will have. Thank you for making me the unique person I am, and thank you for loving me as “ME." Help me to always know this and help me to always love you. Through your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
