A Prayer for Help

God, I need help. I’ve wandered far from you. When I feel bad, I run to you, but when I feel good, I neglect you. I’m in a valley now, but I pray that my present yearning for you would be not transient, but permanent.

Help me love you, God. Help me love my brothers and sisters and parents. But most of all, let me see my extreme need for you. Help me remember what I am without you: a pitiful, unlovely heap who should have died many times over.

But you chose to love me, and that gives me worth and a reason to live. You’ve given me purpose. Please help me remember that.

About Me

I'm a high school student, a teen, who seeks to follow God with everything he has. I've got so many questions and so often I feel like I'm hitting a wall in my beliefs, my actions, and my creativity. And that's OK.

Being surrendered is more of a process than a destination. I'm not perfect by any means, and I struggle a lot. But the daily act of "presenting my body as a living sacrifice," fully surrendered to the will of my King, is what will get me through.
