Lord... LORD!

Lord... LORD!
I need you.
I simply need YOU!!!
I am worn out.
Worn down.

I need a breath.
I need Your breath.
I need Your presence...
Your favor.
Your hope.
Yes, I need Your assurance, Lord!
For today has sucked me dry in this cursed, selfish land.
Now, here I stand.
Famished for Your peace.
Seeking Your wisdom and understanding.
Seeking Your perfect.

I come thirsty.
Face down.
Offering myself alone to You.
Calling desperately upon Your righteous Name.
Please hear me, Jesus!
For I am weary and in need of Your rest.

Lord... LORD!
Make haste and help me!
Coddle me.
Cover me.
Father me.
Be here... with me!
Be still alongside me this hour...
Soothe, and heal, and repair.
Bring me into Your knowledge and light.
So that my hope will be restored.
Yes, relieve my anxious panting.
Settle and calm these lowly nerves.
For I am abused and broken down.

I am helpless...  human...  me.
And cannot survive without holy...  higher...  YOU!

Lord... LORD!
I need you.
I simply need YOU!!!
I am worn out.
Worn down.

Be my shield.
Be my fortress.
Be my strength.
Be my helper.
Be my Holy!!!

Lord... LORD!
Hear my cry.
Remain my immediate and everlasting Salvation!

Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.  My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me. Forsake me not, O Lord: O my God, be not far from me.  Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation. (Psalm 38:10-11; 21-22)
