Psalm 54


“I need help. Can you help me?” Aren’t these some of the hardest words to say? To admit we need help is hard enough, but to actually ask for help is even harder. We like to help ourselves, and we may like to help others, but we hate asking for help for ourselves. Sometimes we’ll go to enormous lengths to avoid admitting and asking for help. We may risk even our health and happiness rather than reach out for help. “I can do it myself” we insist. “I don’t need help” we protest, as everyone around us sees us sinking and failing. We may want to ask for help but we won’t ask for help. Why is H…E…L…P the hardest word to say and how do we learn to say it? Psalm 54 comes alongside to help us say “Help” and get help.
