“Ay, saith Satan, thou mayest pray indeed, but thou shalt not prevail.  Thou seest thine heart is hard, cold, dull; and dead;….thy thoughts are running after other things, when thou pretendest to pray to God.   Whereas the soul rightly informed and enlightened saith, Well, I will seek the Lord, and wait; I will not leave off, though the Lord keep silence and speak not one word of comfort.”  (Is. Xl 27.)  John Bunyan (1628-1688)
