Have you ever been in a difficult situation for too long? And no matter how many times you prayed, you felt that God was silent?
How did you overcome the discouragement? What gave you the strength to stay hopeful no matter what?
It's best to pray until the discouragement lifts and to remember the times that God has blessed you in the past. It also helps to focus on His word and Him as father. Know that He will never abandon you and will renew your strength.
