A prayer for faith

One of the most poignant lines in the Bible, for me, is in today's Gospel. After Jesus chastises his disciples for their faithlessness; after he challenges the faith of a father of a boy possessed, the father responds, with complete honesty and humility:

I do believe! Help my unbelief!

It's a prayer I would do well to repeat, 70 x 70 a day.
