Missing Person Prayer 1
You who sees even in darkness, I ask you to shine your light upon my friend who is missing. I thank you Lord for the many blessings in our lives including life and good health. I do not take for granted the fact that you have protected us since you formed us in our mothers’ wombs. Thank you so much for everything and most especially for my friend who is missing. I ask that you continue to protect and guide her as well.
Lord it is not long ago since she went missing. We have searched for her in every possible place that she could be but to no avail. We have even informed the authorities who are also helping in the search. It has only been a couple of days but it feels as if she has been missing for eternity. All efforts to reach her on her phone have been in vain. Her phone is switched of and that gets us so worried. We feel worried but Lord let us dwell in your word in 1st Peter 5:7. Lord put our worries aside and give us faith that everything will be alright and that she would come back to us safe and sound and in one piece. I ask for your protection upon her. Be with her wherever she might be.
Protect her against all evil. Always be with her even when she is nowhere to be found. Be with her and guide her. Whatever the evil one might be plotting against her, we rebuke it in the name of Jesus Christ. No harm will befall her in the name of Jesus Christ our savior. Lord I believe that you will take charge of this situation that we are faced with.
Sweet Jesus the last time she was seen was when she said she was going out to the mall to pick out a few things. We have not set our eyes on her since then. This is very unusual because she doesn’t do things without informing us and that’s why we feel like something is wrong somewhere. It is so unlike her to just disappear on her loved ones without telling them where she has gone to. Let us find hope in you that she will return to us. Have mercy on us dear Lord and give us a sign that she is fine. We can’t help but think of the worst. We would like to be certain that she is under your protection Lord.
Lord cover her with your most precious blood and protect all those that might also be missing. Create a shield between her and the enemy so that no harm will come her way. Be with her now and forever. I pray this through Christ our Lord.

Missing Person Prayer 3
O Holy Saint Anthony,
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 ready to speak for those in trouble or anxiety. Encouraged by this thought, I implore you to bring back to me (name of missing person). 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.
Missing Person Prayer 4
The Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful, All praise is due to you Allah, Lord of the Worlds, Sovereign of the Day of Recompense. It is you we worship and ask for help because you are the one who returns the lost. By Your power and awe return that whom I have lost, for surely I receive it as your gift and favour. Nothing is beyond Your power for You returned Prophet Youssef (AS) back to Prophet Jacob (AS) after years. If you chose not to return (missing person name), then the reunion on the Day of Judgment will be a sight to see as you lead us into Janna.
Missing Person Prayer 5
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.
Missing Person Prayer 6
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.

We come before you in this hour of need. We claim your promise of being our strength and our refuge on behalf of all missing children. Protect them wherever they are. Keep them under the shadow of your wings. Shield their eyes so they do not see unpleasant and traumatizing scenes, for they are little children. Let them know that they are not alone, you are with them, watching and comforting them. Set them free, Lord. Bring them back to their parents. Amen.
