Help, Lord!


I need Your help, Lord.
I need Your help to be strong.
I need Your help to be pure.
I need Your help to be honest.
I need Your help, Lord.

I want Your help, Lord.
I want Your help to be courageous.
I want Your help to be courteous.
I want Your help to be honorable.
I want Your help, Lord.

I fear Your help, Lord.
I fear Your help will hurt.
I fear Your help will change what I like.
I fear Your help isn't for my best.
I fear Your help, Lord.

I know Your help, Lord.
I know Your help is always with me.
I know Your help is better than I could imagine.
I know Your help is enough for me.
I know Your help, Lord.

I trust Your help, Lord.
I trust Your help cleansing me.
I trust Your help is stronger than me.
I trust Your help is changing me to be like You.
I trust Your help, Lord.

I often feel like quitting, Lord,
and Your help is the only help I need, want, fear, know, and trust.

Zachary,
Thank you for posting this prayer. It sums up my emotions and thoughts too. The life of a Christian is like that. We desire His help and His plan, fear it, and above all, trust it. Thanks!
