A Prayer for When God Seems Far Away

 O loving Lord,

Here I am before you even though I feel far away. I want to get closer, but at the same time I resist.

Is my heart wounded? Am I’m afraid to let it all go into your hands?

Deep down my soul cries out, “Save me! O merciful Lord”.

Let this moment be a time of inner growth. May I learn and understand the deeper mysteries of faith. May the Spirit of Christ show me the heart of Jesus. May I love despite the struggle, beyond the silence.

Purify my heart, O Lord.

Reveal to me your most excellent way, the way my Savior loves me, even alone on the cross, glorifying you in heaven.

In the name of Christ Jesus,

Amen.
