Seeking some help

Hello all. I am needing some help finding a simple phrase in a complicated language.

Specifically, I need to know how a male speaker of either Urban Jordanian or Native Jordanian would say, "God, help me!" This would be a man in extreme mental and physical distress. I understand that Arabic is a language that is different from place to place, but I would like, if possible, for the translation to be as close to what someone growing up in Amman or the surrounding countryside would say.

Also, for the sake of my terrible monolingual brain, I would need the phrase written with English phonetics.

Thank you very much in advance for any help you can give me.
