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.

i often wonder why it is so difficult to ask for help. well done, don!

Don Iannone said...

Polona...thank you! Ego is part of the reason, and I suspect many people don't know they can ask for divine guidance help and it is for their asking. Of course, help does not always come in the form we want it...

Ask and you shall receive. Yes, there are some of us that lead ourself into unnecessary suffering only to realise that help is very near at hand.
