Learning to deal with a chronic illness includes praising God

Today’s Bible Verse:

Psalm 86:12, “I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore.”

What the verse means:

We glorify God by praising him. Our end as the creation of God is to praise God. While nothing we do can add to God’s glory, when we praise Him it exalts Him in the eyes of others. When we praise God, we spread his fame and renown. Praising God is one of the highest and purest acts of religion. In has been said, in prayer we act like men; in praise, we act like angels

Praying using the verses:

1. Father in heaven we pray that we would continue to praise God with all our heart even our loved one faces their illness.

2. Our Lord and Savior Jesus we pray that we would glorify God’s name forevermore.

3. Jehovah God we pray we would focus on Your riches, not our troubles.
