Before asking God to help us, we question why He would want to help us in the first place? Sometimes we wonder if God would really stretch His Hands and send His blessings, especially on our gloomy days. The answer to that is, He does! God not only wants to help us, but He also loves to help us. God loves to hear us calling out His Name, He loves it when we return to Him in full realization that we cannot do anything without Him. No matter how big the thorns are in our hearts, let us never forget that God loves us. Therefore, He will help us, He will bless us and that’s simply because He loves us.

Prayers Seeking the Lord’s Aid

We only need to ask and it will be given to us (Matthew 7:7). Considering the immeasurable power and love the Lord has, it is no question that He will help us. Unlike other earthly vices, the Lord’s help is free! It does not matter who we are and what we do, we only need to seek God and He will help us. It’s that simple. To begin this, we need to pray, communicate, and connect with God so that we’ll know exactly what He’s trying to tell us and how He is going to help us. With that being said, here are thirty prayers to accompany you in seeking God.
