In fact the way this phrase is used in Hebrew indicates that he has not stopped crying out.
Even when he was brought this low, he hasn’t stopped crying out to God.
Sometimes when it seems like we are drowning and there is no hope, we give up praying.
The psalmist says that even when he is the lowest, and it seems like nothing is happening-he doesn’t stop crying out to God.

Never stop crying out to God!
