LORD, help me.

While reading this post, I saw on the page not as it appears, but more like this:

[From Luke Chapter 6] 27 “But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. 29 To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either. 30 Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back. 31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise. 32 “But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. 35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. 36 Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.

I can hear Him because He has given me the ears to do so. But I don't always follow this command. Really, the fact that I can hear Him is miraculous and a work of His grace. Because there are many who can't and don't. But to whom much is given, much is also required.

Grace saves us wrethches, and makes us children.
Grace will take us home.

It's a fight of faith in this age.
Keep on.

That's an excellent prayer by the way: "LORD, help me." Maybe be one of the best prayers we can pray.
