Morning 17 June

Spurgeon: "Help, Lord," will suit us living and dying, suffering or laboring, rejoicing or sorrowing. In Him our help is found, let's not be slack to cry to Him. The answer to prayer is certain, if it is sincerely offered through Jesus. The Lord's character assures us that He will not leave His people; His relationship as a Father and a Husband guarantee us His aid; His gift of Jesus is a pledge of every good thing; and His sure promise stands,'Do not fear, I will help you'." A remarkable, short prayer, but there is a good deal of directness, clearness of perception, and distinctness of utterance in this petition of two words.
