Prayer in Times of Spiritual Poverty

Dear God:
Help me to feel.
Help me to see.
Help me to hear.
Help me to know Your presence all throughout this day.
Right now, 
in this moment of the dark, early morning,
I feel nothing;
I see only clouds;
I hear only silence;
I am alone.
Where are You, God?
Why have You left me?
I cannot face this day
without You,
yet I know I must move on from here.
Oh, dear God,
I want to feel You;
I want to see You;
I want to hear You;
I want to be enveloped all throughout this day 
in Your presence.
Hear my plea,
dear God.
Rescue me from 
this cavern of nothingness!
I cannot escape 
without You.
