How I Pray

When it's too much, when I'm scared outta my mind.. I pray. Not the pretty eloquent prayers of, "Dear Jesus, I believe you will come through for me in this moment..." oh no... it's the "Please-Lord-Please-Help-Me-Help-Me-Help-Me-Help-Me-Help-Me-Help-Me-Help-Me-Help-Me-"..

Sometimes I just can't find my breath. Sometimes the day is taunting me and laughing at me behind my back. That's when I just have nothing left and I turn to Jesus and I just pray my desperate pleading repetitive prayer.

It's not pretty, or sweet.. but it's effective. Within minutes, I am calm and ready to face the challenge. If God be for me, who can be against me?


  1. Oh yeah! I've been there. Sometimes that is too wordy for me (and I love words) all I can say is, "Heeelllpppp!!"

    Thanks for visiting my blog and your comment!!

  2. So thankful that the Holy Spirit intercedes for us and knows exactly what we are trying to say as we are feeling taunted, bruised and beaten up by the day. . or the moment.
    Nothing can stand against us when we call on Jesus. Amen blogging sister. :)
