Prayer For Missing People

Eternal God , in whom mercy is endless,
and the treasury of compassion inexhastible ,
look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us ,
that in difficult moments we might not despair
nor become despondent , but with great confidence ,
submit ourselves to Your Holy Will ,
which is love and mercy itself . Amen

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

O, Blessed Mother and St Joseph, you searched when your Son Jesus disappeared when he was twelve. You would not give up until he was found. You know the pain of having someone missing, and the joy of finding them, as you found your son. Pray for those who are searching now, to find the answers to their questions, and an end to their searching. May your example inspire people to be vigilant, so that their eyes and ears may see and hear news that will bring hope.

O God comfort those who feel lonely and sad because the one they love has vanished. Be with them in the storm and guide them in their efforts.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.


Father, You said whatever we ask for in pray, we will receive once we believe and have faith. We declare today Lord that we continue to stand strong in faith, believing that our loved ones are safe and will come home.

Until then, wherever they are Almighty God, cover them in the precious blood of Your Son, Jesus Christ. We pray they find grace to survive whatever ordeal they are facing right now.

In the name of Jesus, we thank You for Your everlasting mercies, SO BE IT Amen and Amen.

Dear God,
I just found out that someone I love is missing and my thoughts are racing into fear and panic. I surrender all of my fearful thoughts to You. I call upon Your perfect wisdom to guide everything to ensure the complete safety and protection of my loved one. Please take my fearful thoughts from me and heal them for me. I'm willing to trust that Your love ensures our safety and well-being, and there is nothing to fear. In the presence of Your light, there is no darkness. No one can be harmed, threatened or in danger when they are surrounded by the light and protection of Your love. Please take my fears and replace them with Your certainty of a peaceful outcome. I place my loved one in Your capable hands and trust, with all my heart, that they are safe and secure. Thank You, in advance, for their safe and immediate return. Thy will be done. Amen

O Holy St. Anthony of Padua, gentlest of Saints, your love for God and Charity for His creatures made you worthy, when on earth, to possess miraculous powers. Miracles waited on your word, which you were ever ready to speak for those in trouble or anxiety. Encouraged by this thought, I implore of you to obtain for me the return of all the missing children and adults from around the world. The answer to my prayer will require a miracle. Even so, you are the saint of Miracles.

O gentle and loving St. Anthony, whose heart was ever full of human sympathy, whisper my petition into the ears of the Sweet Infant Jesus, who loved to be folded in your arms, and
the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours.


St. Anthony, when you prayed, your stolen book of prayers was given back to you. We ask you now to please pray for all the missing children and adults of the world. Pray for their friends, family, and loved ones in the their time of suffering and sorrow. Pray that all missing people may be returned to our keeping. Or, if we must continue in our loss, pray that we may be given Christ's comfort and peace.


Loving God, the hope and protector of all humankind; bless those whose loved ones are missing. The agony of not knowing whether someone is living or dead is a daily torture. The uncertainty of life's future relationships hangs in limbo. Hope rides a roller coaster. Yet each day must be lived. Give unto your people the blessing of your grace that they may face each day with courage and hope. Guard their families from further danger and harm and hold them in the blessing of your love. Amen.
