I Pray as David Prayed

You made me; you created me. Now give me the sense to follow your commands. May all who fear you find in me a cause for joy, for I have put my hope in your word. I know, O Lord , that your regulations are fair; you disciplined me because I needed it. Now let your unfailing love comfort me, just as you promised me, your servant. Surround me with your tender mercies so I may live, for your instructions are my delight.

Psalms 119:73-77 NLT

Emphasis added


Afflictions and Grace


Without the burden of afflictions it is impossible to reach the height of grace. The gifts pf grace increase as the struggles increase.
