Prayer

Stumped

“I am nothing but dust and ashes” (Genesis 18:27; NIV).

“I am nothing – how could I ever find the answers?” (Jon 40:4; NLT).


Why do you bother with me, Lord?
Why do you give me faith?

For I am nothing,
And I know nothing.

I have nothing to offer,
And I achieve nothing.

Why do you give me prayers
Few people want to use?

What good am I to you,
Without the energy to serve?

My hands are always empty
When I stand before you.

So why do you bother with me, Lord?
You’ve got me stumped!
