HELP

O God, make speed to save us.
O Lord, hake haste to help us.

For the people I know who need you
For the people I don't know who need you
For me
For all of us
Help.

Beautiful.

I just love the artwork, for which I can thank Melancthon . He has the full-color version on his blog.

"Help" -- the prayer that says it all.

Is it just me, or is "allmächtige" fun to say? "Christus der Allmächtige" is practically onomatopoeia.

It's not only fun to say, it's fun to sing...I mean, if I could sing.;-)

By the way, the prayer is perfect. It's about all you can say sometimes (and watching the news this week is definitely one of those times).

Have you read Ole Hallesby's book on prayer? He says that the two essential ingrediants of prayer are faith and helplessness.
