St Ephraim the Syrian: Our Prayers

“Therefore be sure that every prayer that is not fulfilled is certainly harmful; but a prayer that is answered is beneficial. The Giver of gifts is just and good and will not leave your prayers unanswered, for in His goodness there is no malice and in His truth there is no envy.” – St Ephraim the Syrian

“In accordance with His plan, God permits each of us to be afflicted with various sorrows, so that it becomes clear which of us loves Him..." - St Ephraim of Syria
