Day 45 – It’s Okay to Ask “Why?”

When learning to deal with a chronic illness, it is okay to ask God “Why is this happening to me?” It is normal to question why and ask why me Lord.

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. The act of asking God acknowledges God.

Personalized Prayer Using Today’s Scripture:

  • Heavenly Father, I come before you as I face my chronic illness because you are my rock.
  • Lord Jesus, as you said on the cross, I also ask God the Father, “Why hast though forsook me? Why aren’t you answering me?”
  • Jehovah God, even when I don’t understand why and don’t hear an audible answer or even your still small voice to my questioning, I again trusting in you.
