It would be a mistake to think that you can do this alone. Even worse, to believe that you can move mountains on your own. If you are reading this, God is reading you? Your motives, intentions, desires of the heart define who you really are. If you no longer like the person staring back at you from your mirror, pray this prayer.
Now is the time to heed the Lord’s warning. Maybe you think there’s a lot of time left to get right with God, but what happens if you’re wrong?
Sin is like a weed, to rid oneself of it, the weed must be plucked out from the root. There is no better day than today to start weeding out gardens infiltrated with weeds of bad deeds!
If your life is not becoming to you, you should be coming to Jesus!
Psalm 86 Good News Translation (GNT)
A Prayer for Help
1. Listen to me, Lord, and answer me,
for I am helpless and weak.
2 Save me from death, because I am loyal to you;
save me, for I am your servant and I trust in you.
3 You are my God, so be merciful to me;
I pray to you all day long.
4 Make your servant glad, O Lord,
because my prayers go up to you.
5 You are good to us and forgiving,
full of constant love for all who pray to you.
6 Listen, Lord, to my prayer;
hear my cries for help.
7 I call to you in times of trouble,
because you answer my prayers.
8 There is no god like you, O Lord,
not one has done what you have done.
9 All the nations that you have created
will come and bow down to you;
they will praise your greatness.
10 You are mighty and do wonderful things;
you alone are God.
11 Teach me, Lord, what you want me to do,
and I will obey you faithfully;
teach me to serve you with complete devotion.
12 I will praise you with all my heart, O Lord my God;
I will proclaim your greatness forever.
13 How great is your constant love for me!
You have saved me from the grave itself.
14 Proud people are coming against me, O God;
a cruel gang is trying to kill me—
people who pay no attention to you.
15 But you, O Lord, are a merciful and loving God,
always patient, always kind and faithful.
16 Turn to me and have mercy on me;
strengthen me and save me,
because I serve you just as my mother did.
17 Show me proof of your goodness, Lord;
those who hate me will be ashamed
when they see that you have given me comfort and help.
