Day 34 – Pray Without Ceasing

Dealing with a chronic illness includes realizing it is okay to cry out to God. As Believer’s in Jesus Christ, we can place our cares and petitions before the Lord.

Today’s Bible Verse:

Psalm 88:1-2 KJV, “O Lord God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee: Let my prayer come before thee: incline thine ear unto my cry;”

What the Verse Means:

There was no intermission to his prayers. He prayed constantly. Prayer was not his general habit. However, during his time of sickness he prayed. He had prayed that he might be delivered from sickness and from the dangers of death. He had, yet, obtained no answer. Now he prayers again recording a more heartfelt and desperate petition to God.

Personalized Prayer Using Today’s Scripture:

  • Lord, you are the God who saved me.
  • Heavenly Father, day and night I cry out to you.
  • Jesus, my prayers come before you.
  • I ask that you turn your ear and hear my cry.
