“For I said in my haste, ‘I am cut off from before Your eyes;’ Nevertheless You heard the voice of my supplications when I cried out to You” (Psalm 31:22 NKJV)

Have you ever felt as David did when he wrote this psalm? You’re crying out to God in prayer, but you don’t feel His presence? Perhaps this dark night of the soul has come in order to increase your thirst for the Lord. It causes you to grow in awareness of your ultimate dependence on God. And this has become more acute as you desire to hear His voice and experience His touch. When we pray like this what may have begun as a litany of requests becomes a singular desire: “God, I only want You!”
