A Simple Prayer

God (Inspired by)

Lord, help me;
I can’t do this
without You.

I am nothing
apart from You…

a heartbeat
devoid of a heart,
a breath trapped
in congested lungs.

Lord, be my strength;
on my own,
I am so weak.

Spirit willing
but my flesh is frail.

I need You to supply me
with self-control
and resolve.

Draw close to me;
call my heart to Yours.
