Help to Climb the Mountain

Updated on February 8, 2014

Your servant has found

The courage to pray before you

At the foot of this mountain.


I have limited faith in my abilities but

I believe you can show me the way.


My pack is heavy as

I start to climb.

I lay it down. Will you carry it for me?


The terrain is steep and rugged.

I stumble and trip while looking at the scenery.

Hold my hand and

Make a path for my feet.

My eyes are on you.

You will be my guide.

I will listen to your voice and

Answer when you call.


I grow weary as I climb.

Please, give me some of your rest and

Living Water as refreshment.


I am scared.

May I take comfort in your lap?

Hide me under your wings.


My body hurts from

Struggling up this mountain.

Will you soothe it with your balm?


This journey discourages me but

I look forward to the

Rewards you have promised.


This climb has been hard.

Thank you for

Sticking closer than a brother.


From the mountaintop

The struggle to get here seems so small and

You seem so big.
