A Prayer My Family Once Prayed for Me

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.
