Psalms 74:9 (the second psalm written by Asaph)
We are given no miraculous signs;
no prophets are left,
and none of us knows how long this will be.

I cannot even imagine what this must feel like. Of course in our present-day situation prophets are not abundant (or even present?) and followers of Christ do not perform such drastic public miracles, but it has been this way for a long time. Think of when the living generations could tangibly remember God's potent, obvious presence. And suddenly, it fades...without question, He remains, but what a stark change. We modern-day citizens really have no right to complain: the despair Asaph's generation must have felt is beyond comprehension.
