If I ask you to listen to me and you start giving me advice,
you are not doing what I ask of you.
If I ask you to listen to me and you start telling me, why
I should not feel what I feel, you are not taking my feelings seriously.
If I ask you to listen to me and you think that you have to do something
to solve my problems, you are abandoning me,
however strange that may seem.
This may be the reason why prayers work for some people, because
God does not say anything back and he does not give advice,
nor does he try to arrange things for you.
He only listens and trusts that you will come through it all yourself.
So, please, just listen to me and try to understand me.
And if you want to talk, wait a moment, I promise you that I for my part will
listen to you
