Dark Night

Prayer is not a ladder we build to the heavens; rather, as Dietrich Bonhoeffer put it, prayer is God’s work in us. When we do not turn away from God in times of distress or confusion, I believe it is also an indication that God has not turned away from us. When a person prays or just looks longingly in a heavenward direction, even though she may feel abandoned, her prayer is an indication of God’s ongoing presence.

  1. This is a beautiful reminder that we need to walk in His presence continuously — especially when things get rough.

  2. So true! Well said. Prayer is a powerful tool and much needed right now! Thanks for sharing!

      1. Mine too! There has been so much good coming from this trying time. I resurrected my very old blog of 9 years. So encouraging to find others like yourself writing from the heart. Blessings to you!
