Lord, I Want to Return to You

Sometimes our own recklessness, traumatic experiences, or distracting life circumstances take us away from the Church and distance us from God. No matter what, God never despairs over us and always lovingly expects us to return to His shelter. 

This prayer is for all who sincerely seek the way back home.

Lord,

I used to enjoy Your trust, and You were close to me. Then I left Your shelter and Your community. You know why.

I want to go back to You, but I don’t know if I can step through the door to You again.

Lord, I remember the beauty of Your church services, the singing, and the comfort I felt as I prayed with others at Your altar. Lord, thank You for bringing back to me this memory and awakening in me a longing for it.

Thank you for all that you have given me throughout my life.

Lord, I long for Your nearness. I desire Your grace, which gives meaning to my life.

I long for Your gentle mercy, and even for Your admonitions, which have kept me from even greater mistakes.

I miss Your patience, which helped me grow in faith and let me know that I am important to You. 

Lord, I call on You to break the arrogance and pride that hinder me from coming back to You.

Lord, I’m afraid of looking weak if I begin to search for you. Please free me from the fear of the judgment of others.  

Lord, send me the Holy Spirit, so I can cast off my burdens, which grow heavier by the day. Grant me Your grace, so that I will no longer hide anything from You. Let the wall that has grown between us be torn down.

Lord, grant that I may never again succumb to the temptations and false promises that have distanced me from You. Forgive me, “because I have forsaken You, who are the well of living water.” (Jeremiah 17:13b)

Remind me of Your promise from the book of Jeremiah:

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and the Lord is his trust. It is like a tree planted by the water, which stretches its roots to the stream, it is not afraid when the heat comes, its leaves remain green; in a dry year it does not suffer from scarcity and does not cease to bear fruit.”

Jeremiah 7:8

Amen.

Support Operando Society

We are devoted volunteers and we don't want to live in a society where there are a poverty, hunger and misery, which is just inexcusable!

We believe our World can be better, nicer and fair. We do our best to contribute, adding our peace of the puzzle to get this beautiful picture we all thrive for.

We are not paid for the work we do; the money is not our motivation and doesn't drive us in our endeavours working with (and for) the poor from the edges of our society. But of course, without financial resources, we could not implement our goals and activities.

Our website and all that we offer you for free actually cost us. A global missionary journey of our volunteers, Silva and Nace, also costs. There are expenses of transport that we pay regularly from our account - the money that depends on our donors, sponsors, supporters and all the others who want to contribute their share to our mission.

Hence, your donation is not a gift for the benefits of our members and volunteers. It is entirely spent to develop new projects and to cover our regular expenses: website maintenance, accounting and travel expenses for our volunteers.

We know that you care. So we encourage you to support our work and make it possible for us to help the poorest in this World.
