Someone was being destructive, and annoying, for the wrong reasons. For personal reasons – for the I, not for the cause.
I prayed about it.
The person within a day did not change his/her behavior – but did take the ego-centered annoying problems to a different party, after revealing true motivations – and looking ridiculous in the process.
I categorize this under “praying to God for a piece of candy.” It’s not about whether or not I get the candy – it’s just about the process on my side, and what’s necessary within me to ask.
