Help!

Hello readers. I’m thinking you. There is really nothing extra I can say about today’s prayer, as I think it speaks for itself… 

 

Help!

Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living (Luke 15:13).

Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it

(Luke 18:17).

Lord,
Forgive and help me!

I’ve squandered my whole life
In ignorance, foolishness and sin.

I looked for you in all the wrong places,
And knew nothing of discipleship.

Now I hunger for you, Lord,
Please give the bread of life.

I thirst for you, Lord,
Please give me your living water.

Let me sit at your feet to learn, like Mary,
So I can serve you, like Martha.

Help me to apply every word of your teaching 
To myself, my thoughts and my behaviour.

Help me, Lord, I beg you,
Or I am lost.

Help me to start my life afresh,
Like a little child.

Amen.
