Help

I felt so
utterly
defeated.
Nothing is going
my way.
Nothing is going
how I wanted it to.
I feel
so lost
and broken.

So,
I laid down
and closed my eyes.
My mouth
began to move
in soft utterances.

I said,
"Lord, 
I truly need
your guidance 
and help.
I know that
your mercy 
and grace
are unending.
I don't know
where to go
with my life.
But, 
you do.
So please,
help me 
to trust in you
and your path for me.
Please,
please,
help.
Please,
Lord,
please
help me.
In your great
and mighty name.
Amen."

I could feel
the tears
trickle down 
my dry face.
I knew what was necessary then.
I began
to sing a song
of praise 
and of worship.
This became
my prayer.
God reached down,
and blessed me.
This time He said yes, 
but no matter the answer,
I would've praised 
His almighty name.

Me
