“I cry out to God; yes, I shout. Oh, that God would listen to me… All night long I prayed, with hands lifted toward heaven, but my soul was not comforted. I think of God, and I moan, overwhelmed with longing for his help… I am too distressed even to pray….Has the Lord rejected me forever? Will he never again be kind to me? Is his unfailing love gone forever? Have his promises permanently failed? Has God forgotten to be gracious?” (Psalm 77:1-4,7-9, NLT)
Have you ever been so sick or so distressed or both that you don’t even have the will to pray?
Isn’t praying exactly what you should be doing if you are that sick or distressed?
