Sometimes saying that everything happens for a reason, that prayer solves it all and that dryness, discernment, doubt and despair are normal prayer periods to experience sounds a bit jaded. We often have situations that don’t merit what we may interpret as masking or an explain-away. In those situations in particular, we all need to have faith in the cross and Resurrection. Consider the thoughts of “Footprints in the Sand” in these toughest of times:
Carry me, my Lord, my God.
Carry me in times of trouble.
Carry me in times of pain.
Carry me so that I know that nothing that I do is in vain.
This is an addendum to Natalie’s mini-series on prayer in dryness, doubt and discernment.
