Help Me Up: A Prayer of Faith for Inner Strength

My tear is bitter, like gall on my lips, My soul is bewildered as my teardrop drips! Here these praises as they erupt, Help me up, oh, help me up!

As we become stuck, we often lack the strength to get up. The heavy load of despair can subtly hinder our progress, yet it cannot prevent it. The moment we come to terms with the position we are in and change our attitude, it will determine our altitudes. The truth is that we have the power to get up from any place because Jesus Christ is risen and has offered us the power of His resurrection.

The following poem was written at a time when I felt burdened by the issues of life. It is the song I sang to God in my depravity, and the petition I expressed in my pain. In this time I couldn’t see a way out so I had to pray my way.

I hope that it will inspire you to move beyond your own lethargy and be strong. At our lowest point we get the opportunity to look to God who is our strength. As you read, may you be blessed.

Help Me Up

Here in the brook, Your name I call,
You know the way I took to this fall.
Yet I bawl, for I know You'll lift me up,
This stutter in my call, fills me with hiccup.

My Strong God, tie me with your cord,
I cry Your name my Lord.
May Your promise fill my cup,
Here in this gully, won't You lift me up.

My tear is bitter, like gall on my lips,
My soul is bewildered as my teardrop drips!
Here these praises as they erupt,
Help me up, oh, help me up!

Don't let me enemies' laughter reign,
Here in this brook, You know my name.
And this heavy rain, falls and covers me,
Yet as I call, Your love hovers me.

I will never lose courage, amidst the rage,
I'll keep my hope in the vicinity of this cage.
For You are my refuge in a lonely place,
And on my face, I sup upon Your grace.

Oh fill my cup, Lord fill my cup,
Here in this brook, won't You lift me up!

Concluding Thoughts

The Bible says that they that wait on the Lord will renew their strength. It also says that the righteous person who believes in the Lord will fall seven times, yet will rise again. As you pass through the troubles seas of the storms of life, keep your end by following and trusting God. As sure as the new day, and the morning dew, God will rise up with His Mighty Right Hand and defend you from your enemies. God bless and keep you. Amen.
