“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1
Do me a favor. Right where you are, close your eyes and think of something you are dealing with, going through, or praying for. Utter these words before God in prayer” “God, I need help.” And then, proceed to tell Him what you need help with.
Sometimes we make things more complicated than they need to be. So it is true when it comes to our prayer life. Now, don’t get me wrong, I have times when I spend a great deal of time before the Lord in prayer. But I have also learned that sometimes I need to stop over-spiritualizing my prayer, and simply ask God for help in doing or going through what I am involved in at that particular moment.
Those four words, prayed with a sincere heart before the Lord, can change the scope of everything. Whatever is before you, don’t be afraid or hesitant to pray, “God, I need help.” God is there as your “very present help in trouble.” He’s there for you. All you need to do is ask for help.
