Now help me, who am alone and have no one but you, O Lord, my God.
For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds. And to the one who knocks, the door will be open.
Lord, I am not literally alone, but, without you, I would be helpless. Please stay close to me whether I am with my neighbors or isolated by circumstances beyond my control.
I ask you for help when I need it (which is always), but I must seek to find what it is I really crave, your will. I search my heart; I search your Word. I search in silence or in bustle. Then I must knock. I must act according to whatever you show me. If the door doesn’t open at once, I must keep knocking. Help me to persevere in prayer. Thy will be done.
