THE CRY OF A HELPLESS BOY

Until we come to our place of total surrender, we are yet to express our complete reliance/dependence on God.

This is the prayer of a helpless boy who has come to his wit’s end with self love and self ability:

Lead me Oh Lord, lest I fall into temptation

Bless me Oh Lord, lest I look unto my neighbor’s blessing.

Help me Oh Lord, lest I seek the help of man

Teach me Oh Lord, lest I be taught by Teachers with itching ears

Keep me Oh Lord, lest I become a prey to the terrible

Shield me Oh, lest I be hit by the evil arrow that flies by day and the pestilence that blows at night

Speak to me Oh Lord, lest I hear from familiar spirit

Open my eyes Oh Lord, lest I walk into the snare of the Fowler

Pave my path Oh Lord, lest I fall into the pit dugged by my enemy

Lay my bed Oh Lord, lest I be weigh down by illness

Use me Oh Lord, lest I be used by the devil.

Fill me with Your Spirit Oh Lord, lest I be drunk with mixed wine

Satisfy my thirst for Thee Oh Lord, lest I drink from the world’s cistern

Uphold me Oh Lord, lest the world ask me where is my God

Instruct me Oh Lord, lest I walk in the ways of my eyes.

Chastise me Oh Lord, lest I fall into the hands of my enemy

Create in me a clean heart Oh Lord, lest I embrace wickedness

Grant me grace Oh Lord, lest I be frustrated by my ability

Have mercy on me Oh Lord, lest I face thy Judgement

Lord teach me how to pray, lest I pray amiss

Pray for me Oh Lord, lest the devil sift me as wheat

And Save me Oh Lord, lest I be lost in this passing World. These and many more are my heart desire from You Lord.
