There were two angels on a ladder. One was ascending and descending on it all the time. The other one stood motionless and didn’t do anything.
Someone asked him: ”Why the other angel is going upwards and downwards on it without cease and you’re staying without work?”
”Because the other one takes the prayers and requests of the people to God.” <Give me this, give me that.> ”My job is to take their thanks to heaven and because people don’t say any thanks, I stay without work…Sometimes there is someone who says a ”Glory to You, God!” They find it hard to say: ”Glory to You, God!” Or a ”thank You!”
