Do you rely on your own willpower to get you through the tough times?  God is our Father and wants us to call out to Him and call often.  When we take it upon our self, we leave Him out of the equation.  We get frustrated when we don’t succeed at our efforts.  Do we expect God to help us when we don’t ask??  Do we have the faith and the right intentions in our heart.  Are we like a spoiled child yelling, “give me, give me, give me”?  Or, do we go to Him with love and respect and adoration for who He is and say,”Lord, I love you.  I need you to help me because I can’t do this without you.”

You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God.  When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasuresJames 4:2-3
