It is true that every day has its own evil, and its good too. But how difficult must life be, especially farther on when the evil of each day increases as far as worldly things go, if it is not strengthened and comforted by faith.

That kind of prayer takes a good deal of faith and hope. But it isn’t Christian prayer.
