Lord, Teach Me to Pray through Pain …
Read Psalm 69:29-30: But I am afflicted and in pain; let your salvation, O God, set me on high! I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving.
As you pray today, sing a song of praise and thanksgiving to God to focus your attention on Him.
Lord, I thank You for …
- Fightng my battles and for protecting me and delivering me through the difficulties of my life
- My salvation that comes from Your glorifying work on the Cross for my sins
Lord, I ask You to …
- Help me sing through my storms, remembering that You are with me always
- Prompt me to call on You first when I am overwhelmed
- Teach me through this difficulty and make me stronger in my faith
And now Lord, I offer You praise and declare that the joy of the Lord is my strength. You surround me in my trouble for You are a sure foundation and a strong deliverer. All blessing and honor, glory, and power are unto You, Jesus.
There are rare and wonderful species of joy that flourish only in the rainy atmosphere of suffering. – John Piper
