Did you hear about the guy who prayed,: “Lord, so far today I’ve done okay. I haven’t gossiped, lost my temper, been nasty, greedy or grumpy. But in a few minutes I’m gonna have to get out of bed, then I’m going to need all the help I can get.” For some reason the closer it gets to Christmas there are many of us that seem to get a little more cranky as the stress factor of preparation rises in the last few days. We smile at this thought, but the truth is, it’s hard to acknowledge our need of help, especially in a world that prizes self-sufficiency. The Psalmist made a declaration of his source of strength in Ps 121:2, “My help comes from the Lord.” How about you? Are you asking God for the help you need today to accomplish all the tasks you have left to do? Maybe your like the guy who prayed, “So far today, I’ve done okay, but I’m going to need all the help I can get.” Praying that prayer just may make the difference in how far you get today without your day, getting to you.
