Did any Saint or Church Father ever explain what this passage of scripture means?
But if any of you want wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all men abundantly, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea, which is moved and carried about by the wind. **Therefore let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord/B]. (James 1:5-7.)
It’s that last part I underlined that really bothers me sometimes.
Is it better not to pray at all when you’re having doubts?**
