‎”For there is not a day, nor a duty; not a day that you live, nor a duty that you do, but will need that mercy should come after to take away your iniquity. Nay, you cannot receive mercy so clearly, as not to stand in need of another act of mercy to pardon weakness in your no better receiving the last. We receive not our mercies so humbly, readily, so gladly, and with that thankfulness as we should: and therefore, for the want of these, we have the need of another, and yet another act of God’s sin-pardoning mercy, and need shall we have thereof, as long as evil time shall last with us.”

John Bunyan, Prayer
