Real Spiritual Experiences

Prayer Of A Child


As a young boy I regularly read the four gospels of the New Testament. I had undoubtedly read the account of Jesus on the cross before but at this particular reading, for some reason that I do not know it seemed to impact me more.

I was reading the account where just before giving up the ghost Jesus cried out "my God my God, why hast thou forsaken me" I was greatly disturbed as I thought of what state of mind he must have been in to cry out thus.

I determined to pray and ask God why this should be (I recall thinking of my own father and knowing he would always be there for me) I said my nightly child's prayer automatically and then prayed in the way that I do now as a man, asking God how he could do that to Jesus, I heard no words and experienced no vision, but a feeling of indescribable love and righteousness overcame me.

I was amazed and awe struck by the beauty which I was experiencing, I cried and felt that I wanted to die there and then and go with this feeling. I experienced this about maybe ten times over the course of perhaps a year.

I know God lives and his love and righteousness defies description. I believe that what we don't know now will become clear. I believe my experience is not uncommon, and that this experience has a purpose of which I am unsure.

I feel privileged to have been granted this experience. My hope in writing of this experience is that it may promote faith in God and build hope in those who may doubt God or his love for us.

Great story, thanks for sharing it with us! I had a similiar experience, but I heard God speak to me. (I'm a true believer of God) I posted the story too. It's called "A Whisper In My Ear".

I think at some time in life. We all feel as if God has forsaken us and doesn't hear us. Jesus felt that when He was hung on the cross of Calvary. When He had the world's sin upon Him. For a man who had never sinned. Who had always lead a good chaste life. One without sin. To not only at that time be beat horribly and then nailed to the cross, but then have all of the sin of the world cast upon Him. He must have been feeling indescribably horrid. Then He felt God had forsaken. Which we know was not to be the case. But if even Jesus felt that at one point and we as I said we know that was not the case. We too must know and take heart. God will not forsake us. After all He gave His only begotten son.

I read your blog again and am so happy that you are a real believer in God. I really look forward to hearing from you when you have the time. Maybe you could read some of my blogs and hopefully they will be of an encouragement to you too.

Dear Gordon
You are absolutely right! God is so awesome and He is awesome because of His Great Love which like you say is so indescribably beautiful. Jesus had to suffer by Himself without any help from His Father so that He could really take all the sins of the World on Himself. This recorded cry was to show us that He really was absolutely alone with no magic help. All the pain and humiliation was so real. Have you seen Passion produced by Mel Gibson? It is really worth seeing. Keep in touch either on this website or to me by email michaeljaffrayk [at]
