SUPPORTING SCRIPTURE


The Christian prayer life can sometimes feel stale. It doesn’t mean your faith is weak, or that you’re doing something wrong—so don’t get hung up on it! It just happens. But if you want to connect with God and don’t know how to pray, or simply don’t feel like praying…then these everyday prayers are for you.

I Don’t Know How to Have Fun Anymore

“What do you like to do for fun?” It should be an easy question to answer, right?! I mean who knows what you like to do better than you do? So why is it so hard to answer? Maybe because if you’re honest, you’re feeling lost in life (at least a little). Perhaps you have a bunch of new responsibilities and not a lot of time for fun, or maybe you finally got that job you wanted, and you’ve been so passionate about it that it consumes your working hours and then overflows into your not-working hours.

But then a moment comes—space in your schedule. Something you haven’t had in…well—have you ever had space in your schedule? And you have a chance to do something fun—for you. So now you’re faced with the question, what will you do for fun?

If you’re feeling lost in life—like life is coming at you too quickly or you’ve forgotten who you are or whatever—pray this prayer for feeling lost in life with us. Especially because we serve a God who often uses lostness to lead us to our being truly found.

“What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off?” (Matthew 18:12).

A Prayer for Feeling Lost in Life

God who sees me, who knows me, who knit me together with passions, desires, and skills, please find me in my lostness. Protect me from finding my identity in anything but the truth that you love me and that I am yours. Help me discover myself, my desires, and joys in the things you’ve made me to do. And may this season of lostness remove anything that would keep me from being truly found in you. Amen.
