A Divine Promise
Ask for grace of greater confidence and you will receive it, for Jesus put no restriction to His promise 'Ask and you shall receive.'
And the more a grace is important, the more must it be asked; the more it may be difficult to obtain, the more it must be prayed for; the longer Our Lord makes you wait for a grace, the more you must entreat Him to grant it.
Persevere in prayer and you will be heard: Our Lord has given His Word.
