{8:8} But Pharaoh called Moses and Aaron, and he said to them: “Pray to the Lord, so as to take away the frogs from me and from my people. And I will release the people, so as to sacrifice to the Lord.”

The sorcerers were able to imitate God's true miracle (by preternatural means of fallen angel's assistant); they could not remedy the problem, so the Pharaoh had to ask Moses and Aaron to solve the problem.

{8:9} And Moses said to Pharaoh: “Appoint for me a time, when I should petition on behalf of you, and your servants, and your people, so that the frogs may be driven away from you, and from your house, and from your servants, and from your people, and so that they may remain only in the river.”
{8:10} And he responded, “Tomorrow.” Then he said, “I will act according to your word, so that you may know that there is no one like the Lord our God.
{8:11} And the frogs will withdraw from you, and from your house, and from your servants, and from your people. And they will remain only in the river.”
{8:12} And Moses and Aaron departed from Pharaoh. And Moses cried out to the Lord on behalf of the promise that he had made to Pharaoh concerning the frogs.
{8:13} And the Lord acted according to the word of Moses. And the frogs died out of the houses, and out of the villages, and out of the fields.
{8:14} And they gathered them together into immense piles, and the land was polluted.
{8:15} Then Pharaoh, seeing that relief had been provided, hardened his own heart, and he did not listen to them, just as the Lord had instructed.

This situation happens so many times with ingrate people. Asking God for help in a situation, but once the situation is solved, these people forget about God. Some get to the conclusion that it was pure coincidence, or reason that there were no Divine intervention at all, that it was just natural occurrence or that it was going to happen any way. When the terrorist attacks of 911 occurred, many Churches were packed, what happened after that? Many Churches started to close because of the lack of attendance.

When the Pharaoh saw that the problem was solved, he thinks that there is no need of God's help anymore, since all is good now, he can come back to block his heart to God again.
