"Does Job fear God for nothing?" (Job 1:9).

It can be instructive to occasionally listen to one's own prayers. They have the potential to remind us of our native desire to make God the servant of our ideas and values. But if God gave humans everything they asked for that's what he would become, and everyone would be a 'believer' for the reason suggested by Satan (above). God would be a genie in a bottle, facilitating our every desire--and we would not love him at all.
