Can SOMEONE help?!?

God – please help!!!  Do you sometimes feel like you are yelling this from the rooftops?  At the end of your rope, feeling crushed by the things going on in your life, you call out to God and beg him to help you.

 I have been reading a great devotional about prayer by Oswald Chambers.  It is designed to make you think and a recent “question to ponder” asked: “Do I pray more out of panic in response to my circumstances or out of faith in response to God’s promises?”

“Rejoice in the Lord always.  I will say it again: Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all.  The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4: 4-7

 Lord God, you are Holy and you deserve all praise.  Forgive us for the times when we cry out to you only when in desperate need.  Help us to seek you out at all times, and to grow closer to you.  We give all our anxiety to you and ask you to bless us with your peace.  Help us to become gentle of spirit and to always rejoice in you.

Blessings, Michele
