Maybe trying to be “good” isn’t the answer. Who decides what is good? Maybe trying to do the “right” thing isn’t the answer. Who decides what is right? Maybe, just maybe *loving* each other is the answer. No one else can tell you what love is. It is totally personal and subjective. But perhaps if we do everything out of love, all things will turn out good and right after all.
When God has specially promised the thing, we are bound to believe we shall recieve it when we pray for it. You have no right to put in an 'if', and say, 'Lord, if it be thy will..." This is to insult God. To put an 'if' in God's promise when God has put none there, is tantamount to charging God with being insincere.
