How many times have we whispered a prayer

And there’s been a helping hand?

And in how many moments in despair

Lies an answer that we demand?

How many times have we looked up

With a hope for a solution?

How many times have we been answered

Where the matter has faced conclusion?

Invisible helping hands they are

Healing the turmoil in our soul;

When God touches our heart and fills it with hope

When situations take their toll.

Helping hands extend from above

As there’s always an answer indeed;

An opening where we can move forward

Once the Lord will intercede.

He’s always faithful and always there

We just need to ask to receive,

As He’ll never leave us nor forsake us

As He heals us from all grief.

He heals our broken soul

And understands what we’ve been through,

But when we compare it to Christ’s sufferings

There should be no complaining from me and you.

Our prideful ways will not reach out

Nor cry to God Almighty,

Since we’re ferocious in our independence

And God’s ways we take so lightly.

But God’s word does carry weight

As it’s a treasure chest with might;

An inspired promise with a delightful ending

With blessings forever in sight.

God will help us…

We just merely need to ask,

And when it’s according to His will

There’s no limit to His task.

It could be the most dire circumstance

A horrendous one indeed,

But His desire is to deliver us

When we invite Him to intercede.

Our answer lies in humility

When we bend our feeble knees,

And ask for His forgiveness

To do with us as He would please.

It’s a broken spirit and a contrite heart

That receives all of His blessings;

The spiritual ones that count indeed

As we learn through many lessons.

His helping hands are available

But we merely need to request,

And thank Him in advance for our answer

As we know His ways are always best.
