From Evan Almighty.
God: I love that story, Noah and the Ark, you know how people miss the point of that story? They think it is about God's wrath and anger. They love it when God gets angry.
Joan: What is the story about then, the ark?
God: Well, I think it is a love story, about believing in each other. The animals showed up in pairs, they stood by each other, side by side, just like Noah and his family.
God: If someone prays for patience, do you think God gives them patience or does He give them the opportunity to be patient? If they pray for courage does God them the courage or the opportunity to be courageous? If someone prayed for their family to be close do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings or does He give them opportunities to love each other?
I've got to run, a lot of people to serve. Enjoy.
