Help Me Dear God

Source

Help Me

Help me, Father, I cry out to you

I need your strength to see me through

There are so many things that haunt me

Just when I think I'm strong enough

That I've finally let them all go

All it takes is one stray thought

Or a few words from someone else

And all my doubts come rushing back

Along with all my empty fears

Take them away, dear God

And give me peace to take their place

What a beautiful prayer! We all have those times when we find it difficult to be strong. You are stronger than you think! God is always there for you and walks beside you each day. Start your day, everyday, remembering that and you will be strong! Beautiful piece! Voting up and awesome. :)

Sweet prayer in poetry form, shanmarie! : ) I think he knows your pain and fears, as others will try to undermine your confidence. You are not alone. He sends many angels in diferent forms to comfort you and remind you he is there.

I so respect a cry for help. Without God I would truly feel hopeless.

I know. So many of us would feel completely hopeless. Sometimes God is the only link between knowing peace will some day come and giving in to total despair. I like to think of "Footprints in the Sand" and remember that I am being carried whenever I am fighting a battle within.
