This is a podcast episode titled, How Do We Pray When We Feel Far From God? | Prayer on Psalm 65. The summary for this episode is: Sometimes we feel far away from God. Often that’s because we feel a low-grade guilt for sin in our life. But Psalm 65 shows us that God is not surprised or shocked by our sin. He just wants us to come to him with it. That’s why he has built into these prayers an opportunity for us to come back to him, admit our sin, and trust in his atonement for all of it. And we find that it’s always a relief and a joy when we do. So just do it. Right now. Psalm 65:3–5 ESV 3 When iniquities prevail against me, you atone for our transgressions.  4 Blessed is the one you choose and bring near, to dwell in your courts! We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house, the holiness of your temple!  5 By awesome deeds you answer us with righteousness, O God of our salvation, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas Follow Dave Cover on Twitter @davecover.    Like this content?
