That Desperate Cry...HELP!

When we desperately cry out to God with that simple, one-word prayer, HELP!, He lovingly responds and graciously bestows:
  • H - HOPE
  • L - LOVE
  • P - PEACE
In the same way can we not offer those gifts when that same cry, HELP!, falls across our ears.

Father, make us instruments of hope, encouragement, love and peace as we journey up mountains, through valleys, across deserts and down uncertain pathways. Make us agents of all that You are and give as our lives intersect with Your creatures who don't know their Creator...yet. AMEN!

"May the God of all hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him..." Romans 15:13 (NIV)


  1. Rarely do I have a problem forgiving people who have harmed me but when it comes to them treating a member of my family or a friend mean, I have so much difficulty forgiving, Pilgrim David.

    How can I remedy THAT??
    This "Help" acrostic, will help me.
    Maybe I should "engrave"" this right into my heart!!
    I will surely need it in the next few weeks...Love Terry

  2. and we never know HOW exactly God sends that help, do we? but He does ... and draws us closer to Him each time ...

    blessings on you, David ...

    and terry - hope you are ok -

  3. Good morning Pilgrim...Hope all is going well for you..
    I have been on the run the last week!!
    Take care...from Terry
