Prayer based on Isaiah 42:16

Isaiah 42
16 And I will lead the blind
in a way that they do not know,
in paths that they have not known
I will guide them.
I will turn the darkness before them into light,
the rough places into level ground.
These are the things I do,
and I do not forsake them.

Lord, we are blind and in dark places.  We don't know the way.  We have strayed from the path of righteousness and life.  We are lost. 

Lord, you who love the blind, now lead us. 

Lord, you who know the way and paths that we do not know, guide us that we may no wander and be lost any longer. 

Guide us now. 

Lead us now.

Turn our darkness into light.  Take away lies and bring us the truth.  Let us live the truth.  

Lord, we are weary and the rough places are greater than our strength to climb. 

Make those rough place level and smooth that we may walk on them with our limited strength and ability.

Faithful LORD, do not forsake us to our folly and insanity.  Without YOU, we have no hope.   YOU are our one hope.   

LORD, we need you to move mountains.  Amen
