Asking for Help
By Don Iannone
Why do we wait so long
to pray for the help we need,
when we don't know which way to turn in life?
Rest assured there are no perfect prayers,
that must be memorized and said perfectly.
"Dear God, help me" is the perfect prayer
with the right intention behind it.
Admitting there is a Higher Power--
One larger and more powerful than us,
is the perfect beginning point.
Knowing that we need help,
coupled with the willingness to ask for help,
is the perfect start to receiving help.
Being able to recognize help when it arrives,
is requisite to the help helping us.
Allowing the help we receive to incubate,
and fill our healing cocoon,
is vital to our help taking hold and transforming us.
Don't wait so long to ask for help next time.
Needless suffering is just that...needless.
