The following man also thanked God, for the grace that enabled him to be a good person:

Luke 18:11-12
The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
No. What he did, was use what is supposedly a prayer, as a means of doing down others. This could hardly be more different from “see[ing] such personal consent as itself an effect of grace, not as an action arising from innate human abilities”.
