God, I am on bended knees today,
Asking for Your help as I stop to pray.
I am tired of hurting or feeling so bad,
And I always don't like feeling so sad.
You saved me, say You love me,
But I don't love myself; I'm NOT happy.
I am tired of the memories I must face;
And it is something I wish You could erase.
Just WHEN am I gonna' get a break?
I don't know how much more I can take!
Strugglin' to make ends meet,
And more often than not, I feel defeat.
This achin' body is giving me a case of the fits,
And I feel like I am fallin' straight into hell's pits.
Just a little extra help is all I am asking of You;
It isn't much to ask for; what can You do?
My job is not easy, but I still work hard,
But I feel like an old worn out deck of cards.
Havin' trouble communicatin' with the Spanish guys;
And sometimes all I want to do is go on and cry.
I don't hate them; they just need to learn our language;
If they did, then my job'd be easier to manage!
And they could help me; they see I am on a crutch;
Just offer me a little bit of help, that isn't much!
And You see Karla is strugglin' with overdue bills;
And because of it, her body is givin' her various ills.
She needs Your Help more than me; I can see it;
Just do whatever You want, whatever You see fit.
I hate seein' her so sad, and it makes me so blue;
And I feel helpless, as there's not much I can do.
So, Lord, this is what I am askin'--give me a break!I
I don't know how much more of this life i can take!!
In Your Most Precious Name, I pray..amen and amen!
This is one of my prayers I say each and every day.

|I want to tell you that you are on my prayer list and I know God never misses a prayer. We may not always understand his answer but just knowing how much he has sacrificed for us is the strength to cary on. I suffer greatly from spinal stenosis, have had two operations on my lower back and am often in pain but all my prayers are prayers of thanksgiving. God is good! - love Vic|

|When I was young, my Mother told me that, "Every prayer is answered. Sometimes the answer is 'No'".|

All you have to do is knock, and you are doing just that! This is a beautiful prayer for you, Karla and others. Pain takes time to work through, but the more you talk about it, eventually it does lesson, at least that is my way of dealing with it.
Very heartfelt write! Blessings to you and yours!
