Sometimes we get in situations in our lives that we have nothing else to say than “Help!” I have found myself in that more times in my life than I would like to admit. Some is other peoples doing, others is Satan working in the background, but yet others is my own personal doing.
I have been working part-time since last April. I’ve been married since last June and still have not been able to find another job to be able to better provide for my family. It is now starting to hurt us deep as we are unable to do repairs on the house that are needed and we are far from able to afford a second car. We live paycheck to paycheck. We pay our tithes first thing and God has always come through for us. There are times, though, that I feel so overwhelmed with the lack that I find myself up all night crying and asking God “why?”
I find myself in a time of my life that things are great one moment, and the next it seems like everything is falling apart. When I see everything in the natural, all I can pray is “Help!” There are no more words that I can even think, must less utter.
What is it in your life that you have no other words to pray but “Help!”?
Is it a not-so-good medical diagnosis?
Finances crumbling around you?
Friendships ending for no reason?
Family members/ friends passing?
A wayward child that has turned their back on God?
A combination of all of these?
When all you can say to God is “HELP!”, He hears and understands. “And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will. And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” (Romans 8:26-28, NLT)
