Commenting on Matthew 22:23-33, Phillip Melanchthon in his Annotationes et Conciones said this, which I found encouraging:

…in your prayers faith should always be aroused, prayers which you ask not of an idle God, but one who most certainly desires to care, to hear, to help, to save, if you believe in His Son.
