From the Poem:   Unanswered Prayers


When Heaven is Silent ~

When Heaven is Silent ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo fromCreationSwap

When heaven is silent,
when it seems God is asleep
when our prayers appear unheard
yet for answers we beg and weep.

That’s when we must continue,
to trust and to believe
that’s when onto patience
we firmly need to cleave.

When heaven seems quite,
when it seems God’s not there
when we feel we’re all alone
in our misery and despair.

That’s when grace becomes,
sufficient for the day
that’s when we mustn’t stop
or give up on what we pray.

When heaven seems distant,
when it seems so far removed
when we feel so very helpless
perplexed and confused.

That’s when we need to rest,
up in God’s lofty tower
that’s when we need to wait
for His strength and power.

When heaven seems silent,
asleep, quite and distant
that’s when we need to be
with our prayers consistent!

“And he spake a parable
unto them to this end,

that men ought always to pray,
and not to faint;”

When God is Silent ~

I use to wonder . . .
if God heard my prayers
when I was over burdened
by the weight of my cares.

Amid all the clamor,
and the uproars of this life
I wondered if He listened
to the prayers of my strife.

At night I’d lay in my bed,
I would cry myself to sleep
unsure if He still received
the prayers of His sheep.

As prayers went unanswered,
I’d turn into a basket case
thinking for some reason
I had fallen from His grace.

But, now when God is silent,
I know it’s because He’s just
and He is still teaching me
to trust, trust . . . trust!

Proverbs 3:5
King James Version

“Trust in the Lord
with all thine heart;

and lean not
unto thine own understanding.”
