O Lord My God


O Lord my God, help me
I have had writers block
I havenít been writing any poetry

O Lord my God, help me
To continue to be Your Waitress
Serving You wholeheartedly

O Lord my God, help me
To put words down on paper
I miss my gift from You of creativity

O Lord my God, help me
To spread the good news
Of your goodness and glory

O Lord my God, help me
From this nothingness in my head
Deliver me I plea

O Lord my God, help me
Unlock my spiritual juices
I look to you for the key

O Lord my God, help me
I pray and pray and pray
On bended knee

Amen!

Help me, O LORD my God; Save me according to Your lovingkindness. ~Psalms 109:26~

Let my soul live that it may praise You, And let Your ordinances help me. ~Psalms 119:175~

Hear the voice of my supplications when I cry to You for help, When I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary. ~Psalms 28:2~

But You, O LORD, be not far off; O You my help, hasten to my assistance. ~Psalms 22:19~

Heed the sound of my cry for help, my King and my God, For to You I pray. ~Psalms 5:2~

Since I am afflicted and needy, Let the Lord be mindful of me. You are my help and my deliverer; Do not delay, O my God. ~40:17~

In my distress I called upon the LORD, Yes, I cried to my God; And from His temple He heard my voice, And my cry for help came into His ears. ~2 Samuel 22:7~

I liked the simplicity and honesty of the prayer. The second stanza did not seem to fit with the rest of the poem. It was the use of the word "Waitress". Were you talking about your occupation there, or was it the idea of serving God through your writing? OK I am confused! I skimmed through the scripture verses.

I actually got the "waitress" part. Overall good, it seemed to lacked a bit of zing though. Keep writing.
