I don’t know about you, but I’ve been through some painful times in my life when people or circumstances have cut me to the bone and my emotions are in agony. Those are the times when we really need God, but very often we find it so hard to pray to Him.
Sometimes we feel disillusioned with God Himself, or betrayed perhaps, but if that’s the case, as it says in the word of God:
'all things work together for good for those who are in Christ Jesus.' Romans 8: 28
Therefore if you are hidden in Christ, if you know Him as your Lord and Saviour, all that you go through will be turned around for good, so stay POSITIVE.
Those times when it's very difficult to pray, I have learnt that sometimes it's OK not to, but to just sit in His presence. He knows your pain, He knows your struggles and just a simple “help” is sometimes all we need. Don’t feel that because something hurts so much that you struggle to pray about it, God will abandon you on the matter, He will not. He knows your heart and the desires of your heart and He will work in you to help you through.
There was a time in my life when I had been hurt so badly that I could hardly pray about it, but God knew my heart and He knew my desire was to be restored and healed by Him, and He did not fail me, but met me where I was and pulled me up to higher ground where I felt I could pray. Don’t be condemned just be assured of His great and unfailing faithfulness.
