For Daniel Ha, missing since October 31, 2014,
son of Ken and Ruth Ha, who are part of my congregation;
for all who are missing, and for their families and friends.
O God who seeks and saves the lost,
have mercy on those who are missing,
and on their families who ache at their loss.
O Spirit here and everywhere,
protect and comfort each one,
sustain and carry each one in your arms.
As Jesus was once missing from his earthly parents
and restored to them with joy,
restore those who are missing to their families and friends.
O God, have mercy and hear my prayer.
Hear the sighs of the Spirit too deep for words.
Have mercy on all who suffer and need your peace. Amen.
