When my kids are silent, I get nervous. If they are running the house and playing loudly, then seemingly disappear and it gets still, my nature is to be suspicious. So when God is silent, my old human nature gets nervous and suspicious, too. My health has been a challenge and all my prayers bounce back like heaven is made of brass. Is He powerful enough to hear my cry? Is He faithful enough to keep His promise? Is He willing enough to hear my plea and help me? Of course, tho He slay me, I will trust Him. But when He's silent, it is tough.
