At times even in our life,God seems to be silent as if He is not hearing our prayers.
We may have to pass through periods of tests & trials which may test our faith & patience.
But actually God is at work.He engineers the circumstances in our life.He knows the end from the beginning.He will perform what he has planned in our life.We have to believe in God claiming His promises without looking at the circumstances.We must have persistence in our prayers.We must have faith.
