You complain that God is hard-hearted; that He does not respond to prayer, or give signs from His portraits or speak from 'nowhere' to assuage or assure; but let Me tell you, God is Love, Love is God. When there is no response, you have to infer that the cry from your heart is insincere, it is mere play-acting. It is set to a pattern, addressed to someone alien to you, someone accepted by you as a far away tyrant of a taskmaster. Know that God is your nearest and dearest kin.
