Why do preachers tell their congratulations to ask God if it's OK to purchase something?

Are they hoping that God will say no?

Update:

It's supposed to say "congregations ".

    I've never heard even so much as one preacher say such a thing.  That's in two decades of hearing preachers.

    Congregations, right? Not congratulations. If the pastor wants to buy a private jet (like Creflo Dollar/ Benny Hinn types), essentially it seems he's running it past the congregation, because he is using their money to make that purchase.... even if it is more about self-elevation, rather than being "for the church". There are plenty of institutions of man out there, but God dwells NOT in temples made by human hands. A church of man, may not be a church of God, and anyone can attend these institutions and not be among the regenerated.

    Thanks for trolling.
