    It's unnatural and meaningless. What are you trying to say?

    Excuse me, may I ask for your help?
    Excuse me, may I ask you for your help?
    Excuse me, may I ask you for some help?

    Your original would be understood by any native speaker but it would mark you out as a non-native speaker.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
