Being Lost

Here’s a simple prayer for safety.

Please listen along as you read. (Click on the triangle in the slider bar below. The entire text follows.)

Being Lost
The trail has narrowed,
The path has faded,
And You, G-d of Old,
Are my trusted Guide.

I am not lost, but I’ve lost my way.
I am not gone, but I’ve gone astray.
Help me to find the way back to
Safety and shelter,
Family and friends.
Protect me,
Strengthen me,
And give me endurance,
So that I may return to a life
Of service and love.
