Dear Savior, 

You restore that which was lost. The proof of this fact runs all through Your Word like a scarlet thread. These are just a few who were given back the one they loved because someone else made it possible. You are the Someone. You are the great Finder and Restorer of hopelessly lost relationships. You paid our debt to bring home sons and daughters to Your Father! You return us to Him alive! Father, Savior, Spirit, thank you for the sacrifice You made; suffering loss for our sake.  You are the Creator of the Ultimate Family Reunion. We will never be lost again! 

In Jesus Name Forever
