prayer does not move God to do things he is disinclined to do. He has every intention to cause his name to be hallowed. Nothing is higher on God’s priority list.
prayer is God’s way of bringing our priorities into line with his. God wills to make great things the consequence of our prayers when our prayers are the consequence of his great purposes.
"GOD’S PLAN AND HIS WAYS OF WORKING OUT HIS PLAN ARE FREQUENTLY BEYOND OUR ABILITY TO FATHOM AND UNDERSTAND. WE MUST LEARN TO TRUST WHEN WE DON’T UNDERSTAND. IF WE ARE GOING TO LEARN TO TRUST GOD IN ADVERSITY, WE MUST BELIEVE GOD WILL ALLOW NOTHING TO SUBVERT HIS GLORY SO HE WILL ALLOW NOTHING TO SPOIL THE GOOD HE IS WORKING OUT IN US AND FOR US"
— Jerry Bridges - Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts
The Gospel changes everything. May we never forget
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity.
2 Peter 3:18
— When you recognize someone you know. And then ignore them
