Benefits of Affliction -- Leads to Prayer

O remember not against us former iniquities: let they tender mercies speedily prevent us: for we are brought very low. Psalm 79:8

Ah! whither could we flee for aid
When tempted, desolate, dismay'd;
Or how the hosts of hell defeat,
Had suffering saints no mercy-seat?
