30. Of the Help of God to be Asked, and of a Full Trust to Recover Our Former Grace through Devout Prayer

"But now, take good spirit. After your trouble, be comforted in Me, and have full trust in the light of My mercy, for I am near you to help and restore you, not only to the same grace you had at first, but to more grace in great abundance. Is there anything hard or impossible to Me, or am I like a man who says a thing and does not do it? Where is your faith? Stand strongly and perseveringly in Me; be steadfast, awaiting My promise; and you will have comfort when it will be most expedient to you. Abide, abide and wait for Me, and I will come soon to you and help you."

--Thomas A Kempis, The Imitation of Christ
