Everyday Prayer: Praise God in the middle of affliction.
Despite being in the midst of suffering and affliction, David decided to praise God instead of whine and complain.
What does David know that we do not?
He knows that God will not forget affliction forever. David knows his hope will not end up useless because God will remember and God will rescue.
Now, this acknowledges that David does feel like God has currently forgotten him. There are times we will feel and experience this. But know, God will not forget forever. He will come to rescue us from our affliction.
