Pathfinder Prayer is a beloved prayer among members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It is often recited at the beginning of meetings or events hosted by Pathfinder clubs, which are youth programs that encourage physical, mental, and spiritual development. The prayer calls on God to guide and protect the Pathfinders on their journeys and to help them grow in their faith and service to others. As Pathfinders explore the outdoors, learn new skills, and engage in community service projects, the Pathfinder Prayer reminds them of the importance of putting their trust in God and seeking his guidance in all that they do. The prayer has become a cherished tradition among Pathfinders and is a testament to the power of faith and community in shaping the lives of young people.

Pathfinder Prayer 1
Open my eyes to the gifts
You lay before me every day.
Help me to understand that despite
misfortune and tragedy I sometimes face,
blessings are everywhere, and
challenges are often gifts in disguise.
May I learn to trust
that in all circumstances, You are with me
in ways far beyond my imagining,
and that in You, there is hope.
May I learn to see
that all I am and all I have is a gift from You
and that my attitude can have
a ripple effect of positive influence
on those around me.
Help me to live my life as a reflection
of Your love and generosity
with gratitude for today and hope
