I am Begging, Lord Help me

by Patricia (Edenton, NC, USA)

I have no job. I have no money. I am in need. I have reached the bottom pit of my life and I am so frightened I seriously do not what to do. I am begging for God’s mercy. I am not perfect, yet I try to be good. No one in my life knows how bad it is for me.

I am beginning to bring my family down with me and it is not right for them to struggle. I need only enough to pay for rent, utilities, food. I cannot wait for a job. I need this help NOW. We will be evicted tomorrow if I don’t come up with the money. Our water is being turned off today. Our electric the end of the week, but it won’t matter if we’re evicted.

I am literally stuck. Please help me. God. Please hear me. I know I may not have been your best disciple. I keep thinking I am strong enough to get out of my problems by myself, but I keep getting deeper and deeper. What’s the saying? “I’m taking 2 steps forward and 3 steps back.” Just when I think everything is ok, something happens. I need relief.

I need to be able to wake up in the morning and not wonder if someone will be banging on my door asking for payments. I keep looking fo work, but nothing. No one has any jobs. They say maybe during Christmas. I still apply, but I can’t wait that long. I have some many job applications out there right now. Plus, I have no car and there’s no bus service, so I rely on other people to drive me. The biggest problem right now is my rent. I am so far behind. Please God, find me $2000 today. I know I need more, but only You know what I truly need.

PLEASE don’t leave me now when I need you most. I am cryihg so much I feel you have abandoned me, but I believe it’s evil to think that way. Please have mercy on me. Please help me, God. Please help me today. Please help me today.
