“If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small” (Proverbs 24:10).
Jesus pointed out that we ought to pray and not faint (Luke 18:1), and says: “When ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him” (Matthew 6:7-8).
“In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider. God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him” (Ecclesiastes 7:14).
