“For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee … In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.” – Psalm 86:5,7

“If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” – Jesus (Matthew 7:11)
