What do you do when if feels like you call out to the Lord continually but don’t hear an answer — Is this a trial of faith? Is it not God’s time for an answer? Am I asking the wrong question? Does God not care?
I’m sure we can all relate to these out-crying moments — but how do we get to the praise of psalm 18 and 28:
“To you, O Lord, I call; my rock, do not refuse to hear me.”
One of my favorite teachings on prayer comes from Walter Wangerin Jr. He teaches prayer as 4 acts of conversation: 1.We speak. 2.God Listens. 3.God speaks. 4.We listen. Simple, and a fifty percent guarantee. The reality that God will listen and speak is a given, leaving the onus on me to carry out my part.
