It is not so much a case of asking as an issue of submitting to God's authority and of living in obedience to him.

God is Sovereign so why ask Him to rule and reign in us ?

Satan and his demonic hoard are not submitted to God's sovereignty. Neither are unbelievers and most Christians.
Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)

Cf&ff you make a good point and you are right - it is obvious i.e. do we pray or yearn that the sun continues stay in the universe: no.

The sun is a massive star much bigger than earth but God is astronomically bigger than the sun and every other star put togethor (other stars bigger than the sun you probably know) as He created the universe before there was time.


Thus you correctly ask that question.


Why do we do it? Because we lack understanding and we as a church have not been reading the book of Proverbs enough. Proverbs is wisdom literature and if you get wisdom when you get paths of peace and pleasant ways in your life. Well not me at the moment. Hang on, when I am wise I am happy actually. I wish to dear God that I could be wise all of the time.
