What are some of the hard things in life that have made you cry out in anguish, “Why, God? Why would you allow this to happen?”


If hardships and injustices have contributed to your sense of distance from God, describe how that has come about. If they have fueled your desire for God, describe that too. 


God, if you are real, make yourself real to me. Awaken in me the ability to see that you are what’s missing from my life.
