Distress Inspires Prayer

Perhaps one reason God allows distress is so we learn to pray with earnest intensity.*

When David’s life was at stake, he prayed, “Aloud to Yahweh I scream out; Aloud to Yahweh I implore favor! I pour out before Him my trouble; My distress before Him I make known (Psalm 142:1-2).”
