Acknowledging God Being with Us Even When We Don’t Feel Him is Key — A Quote from Leanne Payne in “Listening Prayer”

“To learn to acknowledge always the God who is really there (Psalms 16:8) — immanently with and within us as well as transcendent over and above us — is a way of praying continually as the Scriptures exhort us (1 Thessalonians 5:17). When we do this, the eyes and ears of our hearts are opened to receive the word He always speaks… The acknowledgment that God is always with us — even when we are least aware of it in our sensory being — requires discipline. To acknowledge the Unseen Real requires a concerted effort of our will at first. This is why the term practicing the presence is so useful.”

— Leanne Payne, “Listening Prayer”, p 130
