Bringing Repraoches to God

From yesterday's Universalis site:

When (St Therese of Avila) was on one of her innumerable journeys across Spain, her horse threw her as she was crossing a river. Soaked to the skin she looked up to heaven and said, “If this is how you treat your friends, no wonder you have so few of them!” We should bring everything to God in our prayers, even our reproaches. For a reproach, in the end, is simply our way of offering up to God our incomprehension of what he is giving us.

Since I sometimes think I am all incomprehension, I should always have sufficient materials from which to construct my prayer life....
