(22) "Many times the evil spirit has tried to kill him by throwing him in the fire and into water. Have pity on us and help us, if you possibly can!" (23) "Yes," said Jesus, "if you yourself can! Everything is possible for the person who has faith." (24) The father at once cried out, "I do have faith, but not enough. Help me have more!"
