Lord God, heavenly Father, I ask and would be assured that
my petitions shall and must be nothing less than yea and amen.
Otherwise I will not pray nor have intercession made for me. Not that I
am righteous or worthy, for I know very well and confess that I am
unworthy... But in this that Thou dost command and constrain me to
pray in the Name of Thy dear Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, I am still
somewhat obedient. Upon this challenge and consolation of Thine
infinite goodness, not on account of my own righteousness, do I kneel or
stand before Thee, and pray what is upon my heart concerning those who
are in need of Thy help... I will not cease to knock
but will continue to cry aloud and to plead to the end of my life.
