Help Me, Lord

Help me, O Lord, I implore,
To quell the demon at my core.

In life's trials, it lies in wait,
Until awakened by cruel fate.
The virtuous man can turn astray,
But with Your help, we'll find the way.

The words of Jesus, pure and clear,
Resonate within, calming fear.
No one is wholly good, we find,
Yet through Your grace, we're redefined.

Surrendering to You, we see,
Our lives, our thoughts, our will set free.
Captive to God, imaginations wild,
Help me, O Lord, to be reconciled.

Guide me when storms my spirit shake,
Keep me from judgment's rash mistake.
Help me refrain from taking command,
Awakening demons, dark and grand.

In every soul, good, bad, and stark,
Your love can mold, create a spark.
Accepting You as Savior and guide,
The inner demons fade and hide.

As long as hearts with empathy swell,
With honesty and integrity to quell,
Help me, O Lord, in life's grand scheme,
To stay close to You, in every dream.

Grant me the strength to endure each strife,
To count my days and seek wisdom rife.
When all is said and battles are fought,
May I say, "I've kept the faith, as I ought.

    On Earth, both God and Satan require human vessels( bodies). Satan needs no invitation, seizing upon any trace of darkness. In contrast, God respects free will; you must seek Him, inviting His cleansing through Jesus' blood.

    As His word says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me."

    Opening your heart's door is embracing the purifying blood of Jesus. Our God, pure and holy, cannot tolerate iniquity. Prepare your heart for Him today by banishing the demon within. The truth remains: a demon dwells in every human
