|Remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold.|
|They said to you, "In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires." These are the men who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.|
|But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in God's love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.|

"...let him ask of God, that giveth to all liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith." --James 1:6
Ask. And if you need faith, ask for that too.

(Butler's Lives of the Saints)
