It’s Okay to Ask “Why?”


When facing a chronic illness it is okay to ask God, “Why is this happening to me?”

Today’s Bible Verse:

Psalm 42:9a (KJV), “I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me?

What the verse means:

Asking God why is a sign of faith.

Praying using the verses:

  1. Heavenly Father, we come before You as we face our chronic illness because You are our rock.
  2. Lord Jesus, as You said on the cross we also ask God the Father, “Why hast though forsaken me? Why are You not answering me?”
  3. Jehovah God, even when we don’t understand why and don’t hear an audible answer or even Your still small voice to answer our questioning we still trust in thee.
