My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? (Psalm 22:1; NIV).
Clouds and thick darkness surround him (Psalm 97:2; NIV).
“And be sure of this: I am with you always” (Matthew 28:20; NLT).
And we are confident that he hears us (1 John 5:14; NLT).
Seek him in barrenness,
Wait in the darkness,
Listen in silence,
Be still, and draw near.
Then pray without words,
For he will be present,
Always beside you,
And ready to hear.
