St. John Chrysostom
Bishop and Doctor of the Church

“Whether, therefore, we receive what we ask for, or do not receive it, let us still continue steadfast in prayer; and let us give thanks not only when we have received, but also when we have not received. For to fail in obtaining the desires of our heart when God so wills it, is not worse than to receive it; for we know not as He does, what is profitable to us.” (St. John Chrysostom, Bishop and Doctor of the Church; On Prayer)
