The goal of the devil and the temptation of your soul is to attack your connection to and conversation with God. You cannot break your relationship with Christ, but you can close your eyes to it. You can forget about it. You can doubt it. Don’t give in to that temptation. Pray!
If you cannot bring yourself to pray, then thank God that Jesus is always praying and interceding for you before your Father. It is a great comfort to know that when the devil was going after Peter, Jesus was interceding for him, even though Peter was not aware of what Satan was doing. Jesus told him in Luke 22:31-32, “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift each of you like wheat. But I have pleaded in prayer for you, Simon, that your faith should not fail.” Reader, Jesus prays for you in just the same way. Remember Hebrews 7:24-25, “But because Jesus lives forever, his priesthood lasts forever. Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf.”
Thank God that the Holy Spirit is always praying for you with groanings that cannot be put into words. Remember what God promises in Romans 8:26-27,
And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will.
No matter how bad or dark things get, do not under any circumstances stop praying. Do not stop reading God’s Word. Do not distance yourself from your church family. In times like that you need those supports more, not less.
