Don't flatter Gd


"Daniel said [when addressing Gd in prayer], "The powerful, the great, the awesome," but he did not include [the standard Mosaic text], "the mighty." His children are in chains, where is His might?... 

"But is flesh and blood empowered to make such decisions?! Rabbi Yitzchak ben Elazar said: His prophets know that their Gd is a Gd of truth, and so they do not flatter Him."

(Talmud Yerushalmi Berachot 7:3)

Have a great day,
