Pause for Prayer: TUESDAY 4/1

Image source

I stumble, Lord - a lot!

I bend under pressure
and trip over my own mistakes...


I lose my balance
and fall flat on my face...


And sometimes I'm a stumbling block 
for those whose paths cross mine...

Still, you never fail to help me,
reaching out to lend your hand...

You're always there to lift me up, 

dust me off, give me a second chance
and help me on my way...

So, when I'm hard pressed, Lord,

   and get in my own way...

When I'm not steady on my feet
   and need your help to keep my balance...

When I'm a pothole or a rut
   on the road my neighbor travels...

Then remind of your help, 
make steady all my steps,
reach out with your strong arm to catch me as I fall,
and let my foot not trip another walking by my side...  


I was hard pressed and falling
 but the LORD came to my help...
- Psalm 118
