Buddhism Day by Day: Enduring the Struggle to get Prayers Answered Makes us Stronger
“The struggle we go through to have our prayers answered makes us stronger. If we were to immediately get everything we prayed for, we would become spoiled and decadent. We would lead indolent lives, devoid of any hard work struggle. As a result, we would become shallow human beings. What, then would be the point of faith?”
