Q&A with Dr. Graham

January 2, 2021 by Dr. Jack Graham

Q        It sometimes seems like my prayers just hit the ceiling. Is it worth praying when I feel like this?? 

A       You’re right—when we come to pray, we don’t always feel like it’s making much difference. We wonder, Lord, do you really hear me? 

But here’s the truth: God has promised to be with you always. So if He’s already in the room with you, your prayers don’t have to get above the ceiling!

Remember to pray in response to His Word, not in line with your feelings.

And keep praying because He is listening!

Q         What should I do when I feel spiritually dry and distant from the Lord?

A          New love is thrilling! But as time passes, the newness fades and the excitement often fizzles. 

This is true for all relationships—including our walk with Christ. 

The answer is to pay attention to where you’re looking! As Scripture says, “Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith” (Hebrews 12:1–3, emphasis mine).

Take time each day to purposefully fix your eyes on Jesus—so you see once again His beauty, His majesty, His power, and His grace. Then that flame of love is sure to rekindle within your heart.
