Help Me, Great God!

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Psalm 70:1-5

When we're going through tough times, we can call out to God and ask Him to help, comfort and strengthen us. That's exactly what we see David doing here, but a big part of David's prayer (and I believe his help) is a recognizing and praising of God for His goodness in the middle of his distress.

"May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you! May those who love your salvation say evermore, 'God is great!'" (vs. 4)

It's so easy to turn our focus inward on ourselves when circumstances aren't the best in our lives. So making sure praising God--regardless of our situation or what we're asking of Him--is important. Praising should be part of each of our prayers because it serves to properly focus us on God rather than fixating on our circumstances.

What do your prayers look like when you're in the middle of trying circumstances? How does praising God when you're hurting positively impact your attitude and thinking? Tami

Through these studies I am more conscious to praise the Lord while I am in prayer for His help.

I know of two Christian ladies who have cancer and praising the Lord for His daily mini blessings/miracles.One of these dear ladies will be have surgery and chemo for her breast cancer.

David was known to praise the Lord while He was asking the Lord to help him in his troubles.


Trouble comes like the sparks fly upward. Suffering is a normal part of the Christian life. When I suffer, I feel closer to others who also suffer.
