A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

If You're there, answer my prayer.

Dear God,
I have believed in You, and lately question if You are really real. I don't mean any disrespect by this, but its the way that I am feeling. The past few months have been truly difficult. I need to know if You are still there for me? Do You see me? Can you hear my cry? I need to know that everything is going to be alright. Can I get some of this load off my shoulders??? I feel that I am a strong person, but there is only so much one person can carry. I am asking You God, that if You are listening, please hear my prayer.
