Let's say you're a supervisor of 2 employees. Employee number 1 comes to you and says, "You know what...I have this awesome idea and I don't really care what you think about it--you should do it. Actually, I'd be shocked if you could pull it off." Then, employee number 2 comes to you and says, "Could you help me out with a problem that I'm having? I couldn't think of anyone better to go to for this--you know what you're doing and I clearly have no idea. I'd love to get your opinion on it."
Which employee are you more likely to help? Which one sounds like you when it comes to asking God for something in prayer?
