It may seem paradoxical to the reason of the flesh to pray for an answer to prayer, to pray, “God, please give me an answer, any answer” — but pious Christian hearts understand that request very well. Sometimes all that is needed is an answer, any answer, from the Lord — for then we know that He hears us, which is the most wonderful comfort and consolation, and we are content, knowing that whatever He sends will be good.


Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

— Jesus (in St. Mark 11:24)
