The Juliana Theory

"This is our Lord's will, ... that our prayer and our trust
be, alike, large. For if we do not trust as much as we pray,
we fail in full worship to our Lord in our prayer; and also we
hinder and hurt ourselves. The reason is that we do not know
truly that our Lord is the ground from which our prayer
springeth; nor do we know that it is given us by his grace and
his love. If we knew this, it would make us trust to have of
our Lord's gifts all that we desire. For I am sure that no man
asketh mercy and grace with sincerity, without mercy and grace
being given to him first."
Juliana of Norwich (1342?-1417)
