How many times have you had a problem and tried to solve it only to be disappointed? What kinds of things did you try as a solution? Did you turn to friends for advice? Or, maybe you went to a family member, a doctor, or other authority.
A friend came to me for advice on a problem. He told me all about it, and when he was done I didn’t have a solution for him. I wasn’t sure what advice to give.
So I said "The only thing I know to do is pray about it".
