This short "hands on" prayer has great possibilities for awakening you to an essential and undeniable reality: your absolute dependence upon God. To help awaken you to reality, you might try beginning each task to which you put your hand by saying, "So help me, God." Use that four-word prayer as you grasp the steering wheel of your car, finger the keyboard of your computer, or place the kitchen pot on the stove for the evening's meal of chili. "So help me, God" is both prayer and self-talk as you announce your absolute dependence upon God.
