Prayer for the lost sheep

Lord, there are so many that I pray for,
people whom I know that You adore.
Many of them seem to have lost their way,
seem to have wandered away, I should say.
I wonder if You could reach them still
and teach them again to seek Your will.
I hope You will not leave it up to them;
don’t trust the source from where their choices stem.

Father, Your Spirit will convince of sin
and He can work directly from within,
so send Your Holy Spirit to convict
and cause them turmoil and inner conflict.
Do not allow them rest or peace of thought
return them to You from whom they were wrought.
You work with endless love and patience -
lay a love-burden on their conscience.

Father, I trust them to Your care today,
Your will be done, in Jesus’ name, I pray.
