Is God your last prayer?

You worry about money.
It becomes a constant worry.
Anxiety begins to creep in.
And depression takes over.

You become overworked.
Staring at bills, unpaid.
Stressed, and exhausted.
Is God your last prayer?

Somewhere I read these words.
God knows that you need money.
Yet, you do not live by bread alone.
But by every word of God.

When you are desperate.
With mouths to feed and clothe.
You ask God … Why?
Why has he abandoned you.
