Poor Man’s Prayer

Lord, please help me again.
My luck finally has run out.
I need you more than ever.
I don’t know what to do.
I work 12 hours a day
and account for every cent,
but before I even blink
all my money has been spent.
No matter how hard I try,
I never seem to stay ahead.
I skip meals to save on food.
My bank accounts are in the red.
I sold my car for 50 bucks
after a freak auto accident.
Now I wait by the road
with my hand up, thumb bent.
Lord help me again.
My luck finally has run out.
I need you more than ever.
I don’t know what to do.
