The article, “How to Pray in the Midst of Crises”, David Standford states
“How should we respond in the midst of crises? The short answer is: by praying. Here are some examples from the Psalms.”
In our most turmoil, we sometimes do not realize that God is closest, but he still needs to hear our prayer. This is when prayer is most beneficial. In these moments of desolation, Christ and God is very close to our heart. We may not realize it, but we are being carried in these moments.
St Teresa of Avila teaches that when we feel most abandoned is when Christ is most near. The soul learns that it needs God to survive and the yearning is a teaching process of the soul’s dependence upon God. It also can merit for us, through the Holy Spirit’ kindness, much grace in our spiritual development. We in this way show God we are with him regardless of blessings or misfortune, as Job was.
