Show Summary

625

The devil gives heaven to people before they sin, but after they sin, brings their consciences into despair. Christ deals quite contrary, for he gives heaven after sins committed, and makes consciences joyful.

Last night as I waked out of my sleep, the devil came and said: God is far from thee, and hears not thy prayers. Whereupon I said: Very well, I will call and cry the louder. I will place before my sight the world’s unthankfulness, and the ungodly doings of kings potentates, and princes; I will also think upon the raging heretics; all these will inflame my praying.
