(Please allow the words of this prayer to become your own.)

Loving God,

There is nowhere I can go where you would not find me.

You took on the darkness of evil itself

to rescue humanity from brokenness and death.

Loving God, find me in my dark places today.

Find me when I am stuck, doing the same thing over and over,

even though I know it’s bad for me, hurtful to others,

and against your will.

Find me in my personal places of hypocrisy.

Help my outer life and my inner life be one and the same.

Find me when I feel scared of life, fearful about my future,

overwhelmed with all I’m facing.

Find me when it feels like life is out of control.

I know that you are with me even on my darkest days.

You sustain me when all my resources are gone.

You are my strength when I have none.

You are the one who rescues me again and again,

and sets me free.

Thank you that nothing I face today, nowhere I go,

no deed I’ve done can separate me from your healing love.
