‘What makest thou?” The words of the pottery to the Potter. One example of this attitude is praying to God by faith, which is something so common today in many churches.
To pray by faith is like saying (telling God) that “God, I want you to do ABC and XYZ for me else forget it”. Left to me alone, if I had my will, what we should be praying into being for our lives is the will of God, that He will have His way in our lives, since His ways are always higher and better than ours.
If you don’t know what this prayer is like, look at my life; I’m one living example of the will of God.
