When The Heavens Feel Like Brass

Keep praying. The brass will bow to your faith.
For a while now, when I prayed, for some reason, I feel  a kind of disconnect, like I'm speaking but my voice was not carrying upward past the ceiling of my room. In short, for some time, when I prayed to God I was not sure he could hear me or was listening and I found myself straining to hear him. In short, the heavens felt like brass. 

So what do you do when faced with this situation? 

Keep on talking/praying. Period. I figured out that even if the heavens felt like brass, even if there was static on the line, even if the connection seemed weird and it felt like I was not communicating properly......God was still at the other end of the line. No matter what, God never drops the phone on his children. Many times, in the recent  weeks gone by, I just felt like I was not getting through but I just kept on talking (praying), in the shower, in the car, in the elevator, on my knees in the bathroom at work, even during meetings at work and you know, as heavy as I felt my prayers were, God heard me. How do I know?

Cos somehow in the midst of it all, my laughter remained. As brass as the heavens felt, help came my way. As bad as my connection to God felt, I am positive he could hear me cos he moved for me, made lines fall for me in pleasant places even  as the proverbial kaka hit the fan in some areas of my personal life! In fact, if you ask me, I am convinced that the devil just got so frustrated with how much favour I was experiencing concerning my upcoming book signing that he just flew off into overdrive. 

Anyway, the moral of this blog is this: No matter how you feel about your current spiritual status or about the intensity or quality of your prayer life never let that put you in a place where you stop talking to your God. No matter what you think, he can hear you. He is listening. He might not be able to move for you till you clean up/let go of some stuff (sin, resentment, bitterness, un-forgiveness, etc)  but I believe he never stops hearing the voices of his children. Just in the same way, he never leaves or forsakes us. So no matter how brass like the heavens may feel when you pray, please never quit talking/praising/worshipping God. Cos if you do, the devil will win cos that is exactly what he wants: To disconnect you from the only true Source of help you have.

Don't let that happen. Choose to keep praying, singing, praising, worshipping God as best you can, regardless.

I know that's what I have been  and will continue to do till the brass heavens give way because at the end of the day my faith and God's love are both stronger than brass.

  2. You are not alone with this...as long as you are a child of God, there are times when it will feel as if He has pulled Himself away form you, is not listening etc. But from my own experience it is that time you step up your praise, pray more, worship more, love more....the brass knee will then bow!!!

  3. That men always ought to pray and not faint...so true my dear DNW, so true. That period of silence is most trying but also the time of great growth even if it doesn't feel like it!
    And then our God comes...

  5. when i saw the title of your post, i was like in my mind of of course..."here is a woman who has experienced something i've gone through"...yea..that bouncing off the ceiling back to you stunts is not funny @all. it can leave you frustrated.So frustrated but i just bone it and tell myself and whatever may be causing it that whether you Like it or not, you better continue praying to God. "Baba God, na me and you today oo" and i'll keep doing so till i begin to flow.
