Yes it is a great consolation, the Lord holding our hand.

Where shall I go from your Spirit?
Or where shall I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, you are there!
If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
If I take the wings of the morning
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
even there your hand shall lead me,
and your right hand shall hold me.
Psalm 139:7-10

Calls to awaken always motivate me.

I am the slow and phlegmatic type, it seems, and so I need to hear a Reveille.  Cheesy

If we patiently accept through love all that God allows to happen, then we will begin to taste even here on earth something of the delights the saints experience in heaven. But for this we must serve God willingly and lovingly, seeking to obey the Divine Will rather than follow our own inclinations and desires. For the perfection of love demands that we desire for ourselves only whatever God wills. Let us implore the good God unceasingly to grant us this grace.

'The reason why sometimes you have asked and not received, is because you have asked amiss, either inconsistently, or lightly, or because you have asked for what was not good for you, or because you have ceased asking.'

I wonder what is the way to know when you should quit asking ('cause the answer is "no"). St. Paul says it is three times.

We are to persist, for as long as it takes.  St. Monica prayed for 16 whole years for her son's conversion, and finally had her prayer answered by Our Lord.  I'd like to know the Bible passage of St. Paul that you are referring to, Brigid.  God bless you.

I agree.
The parable of the widow and the unrighteous judge, Luke 18:1-8, encourages us to persevere in prayer. We are to petition God tirelessly for our needs.
