A Prayer For Searchers

Fr. Dale Matson

Dear Lord watch over those who seek the lost. Give them a steadfast will to persevere through discomfort and fatigue. Instill in them a sense of optimism and hope. Convey them on steady feet and strong legs. Help them avoid missteps and wrong turns. Protect them in whatever their conveyance. Give them a heart of strength and quiet compassion. Endow them with keen and steady vision. Open their ears to human sounds calling out in wilderness. Let them have sound judgment about what is possible and what is not possible. Give them a team spirit to watch out for one another. Equip them with adequate skills and provisions. Bring them home safely and protect their families while they are away.  Provide their leaders with clarity of thought, courage of conviction and the wisdom to deploy them correctly. Amen
