Unanswered Prayer

I prayed for many things and was not heard. For even this occurs often to your advantage. Since [God] realizes that you lose heart and are indolent, and that when you attain what you need you depart and no longer pray. God protects you with the pretext of need so that you may concern yourself with him more closely and devote yourself to prayer.” John Chrysostom (c. 349 – 407)
