Two months ago, a Texas woman was attacked by a snake and a hawk at the same time. Peggy Jones, from Silsbee, was mowing her yard when a snake fell from the sky and wrapped itself around her leg. Then the hawk, which has presumably dropped the snake from above, swooped down and began pecking on Peggy’s arm, until he successfully snared the snake and flew away with his prey.
Peggy screamed, “Help me, Jesus! Help me, Jesus!” until her husband ran out, wiped away the blood, and took her to the hospital, where she was successfully treated for her injuries.
Too many of us wait until we have been attacked by a hawk and a snake to scream, “Help me, Jesus!”
Whether you are fighting a sex addiction, married to a sex addict, or facing an exam at school, that prayer is appropriate: “Help me, Jesus!”
Recovery Step: When Peter got out of the boat to walk on the water, he quickly noticed that the winds and surf were working against him. Then he did what all of us have done. He took his eyes off Jesus and began to sink. But then he prayed a simple prayer, just three words: “Lord, save me!” (Matthew 14:30). I suggest you pray that same prayer today.
