The first kind of prayers originates from the mind. We have clear thoughts, desires and contentions for why we want something. We beseech and petition God with our requests. God often receives such prayers with a grain of salt, for His plans for us are always more exalted than our plans for ourselves that are patterned by our limited understanding.
