The Silence of Unanswered Prayer


They say you answer prayer
Forgive me, if I doubt
For after praying hard and long
And words had long died out
The only answer that I got was
Silence

They say I must believe for you to answer prayer
Forgive me; if unbelief has flourished
For though I had the smallest faith,
The mustard seed you required
The only answer that I got was
Silence

They say I’m a failure
And well, that may be true
In angry tones assuring themselves
You answer prayers of the right, yet
The only answer that I got was
Silence

I’ll take my silence and my doubt
My unbelief and failure
While others are convinced their right
I’ll take with grateful heart
The only answer that I got
Silence
