Help Me Father

Yesterday I noticed a thing that I do. I noticed that I do it all the time but I do it almost unconsciously. I cry out to the Lord throughout the day. Not loudly, no tears and I don't think anyone else would notice, even if they were paying attention. It's more of a sigh but almost whispered...a quiet murmur, yeah that's what it is, a quiet murmur.

"Help me Father."

It is my constant plea to the Lord. That I repeat without even thinking about it. I usually say it when my mind gets distracted and I'm thinking the wrong or bad thoughts. Sometimes I say it when my emotions are trying to get the best of me. And most often when I just don't know what to do. I feel like it is me reaching out for His hand, for His correction, for His help.

You see, I don't want to deceive myself into thinking that I am doing everything right. That my understanding of Him is so good that I got this or that I got it all together. More than anything, I do not want to mess this up, so I am constantly calling out to Him. I believe that I am on the right path but I also know that there is always room for improvement. The outcome of the journey means everything to me and I know that I cannot do it without His help.

So, "Help me Father," is my hearts' sincerest cry and it just happens to slip from my lips several times throughout the day. And when I think about it I'm sure He hears me and I also believes that He responds.

Is it just me or does anyone else have something they often whisper under their breath to the Lord? Maybe a repetitive, 'Thank you Lord,' or maybe even a 'Fix it Lord,'. Something that you say outside of prayer, something spoken so intently that the universe would almost be expected to respond.

What is your hearts cry to the Lord?

Psalm 86:3 3Be merciful unto me, O LORD: for I cry unto thee daily.

Psalm 116:2 2Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.

Job 27:10 10 Will he delight himself in the Almighty? will he always call upon God?

2 Timothy 2:22 22Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the LORD out of a pure heart.

Psalm 50:15 15And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

Psalm 18:6 6In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.
