    3. As we get older; how unnecessarily complex and intricate are our prayers? 
    4. Outward trials help produce inward character; Peter seems to embody James’ sentiment of rejoicing when you face trials of many kinds; suffering is a way to continue to build yourself up (have unfading beauty which is inside)
