Cassy is unable to trust that her prayers will be answered.

"O, Em!" said Cassy, "I've hungered for my children, and thirsted for them, and my

eyes fail with longing for them! Here! here!" she said, striking her breast, "it's all

desolate, all empty! If God would give me back my children, then I could pray."
