Praying When You Can’t Pray

On 22 February 1943, Sophie Scholl was beheaded for conspiring against the Nazis in Munich’s Stadelheim Prison. 

“I’m still so remote from God that I don’t even sense his presence when I pray. Sometimes when I utter God’s name, in fact, I feel like sinking into a void. It isn’t a frightening or dizzying sensation, it’s nothing at all — and that’s far more terrible. But prayer is the only remedy for it, and however many devils scurry around inside me, I shall cling to the rope God has thrown me in Jesus Christ, even if my numb hands can no longer feel it.” – Sophie Scholl
