S (SCRIPTURE) Psalm 38:17 & 22
I am on the verge of collapse,
facing constant pain.
Come quickly to help me,
O Lord my savior.
O (OBSERVATION):The psalmist recognizes their human condition and the toll the enemy is having on them. Asking the lord to come quickly is a need to feel God's presence.
A (APPLICATION): The words of the Psalmist again cry out truth to our human condition. It is the best of both worlds, recognizing our human frailty and heavenly promise. God is not far but present in all things. Not sure I have ever felt constant pain but certainly have been on the verge of collapse recently. Loss of sleep and irregular heartbeats stemming from an anxiety producing event has made more even more aware of the promise and ask placed on God. Come quickly to help me, O Lord my Savior. Only God's presence remedies this anxiety. Finding ways to come and draw into God's presence in times of collapse and constant pain are harder realities.
P (PRAYER): Lord for all who are in touch too deeply with constant pain and on the verge of collapse, show your presence and come to us quickly.
