Dear Father,

Prayer for love to return

O Lord,

Each moment of everyday I trust my loved one to you. May you cover them with protection, carry them through the hard times, and lead them to love and happiness.
May you rekindle the fire of our love. Come inspire my mind and show me if there is anything I can do to care for my loved one.

I can not always be there for them, but you are forever besides them. Each moment of everyday I trust my loved one to you.
