Our Heavenly Father,
we come before you to request Divine Intervention
in the emergency rescue of a drowning soul.
The energy of this confused, restless spirit is enormous
but he has taken the wrong river and, at this very moment,
faces mortal extinction, thrashing about wildly
in a whirlpool of lies, cursing the darkness,
growing weaker by the hour.
And, while we do acknowledge the faults and misdeeds
of our wayward brother,
so do we also pray for Your merciful consideration of
his greater self,
asking that You brighten his midnight sky
with even the faintest flickers of lightening
so that his eyes may focus upon the nearness of the shore
and upon the many strong, outstretched hands.
