If you are experiencing challenging or sad times and feel like your prayers are not being heard, first of all tell yourself the truth - God hears our prayers. He has promised to hear, listen to and answer your prayers (Jeremiah 29:11-14), so believe the truth; whether it feels like it to you or not.
Then, take heart! Be encouraged by the truth of how the Holy Spirit makes sure you get heard! When you do not know what to pray, choose to believe Romans 8:26, 27 -
The next thing for you to do is for you to pray. Make time every day - and throughout the day to talk with God knowing, and believing He hears you, the Holy Spirit will help you and God will answer.
And finally, record the answers. This is a great way to remind you of the truth should you feel like God is not hearing your prayers. It is also a powerful way for you to impact the generations who follow you as they will not only hear how God was there for you and answered your prayers when you tell them, but they will be able to read the record and remember even when you are gone.
