Why pray for favors?

If God’s plan for the little girl who fell down the well is to rescue her, prayers are unnecessary. If God’s plan is not to rescue her, prayers are useless.

    Prayer is for the supplicant, not God.

    There was religious man trapped on top of his car in a river, in a flash flood.

    A Boy Scout saw him, from the shore, tried to throw him a line, but the main waved him off, saying “The Lord will provide.”

    A short while later, a Sheriff’s deputy circled around, in a rubber boat, offered to take him ashore, but the main waved him off, too, saying “The Lord will provide.”

    Just before dark, a helicopter hovered overhead, but over the loudspeaker, the crew heard the man decline their aid, too, saying “The Lord will provide.”

    But with the next onslaught of water, the man was washed downstream and he drowned.

    He did meet his Lord, as he knew he would, but asked with desperation, how could He have so abandoned so faithful a servant.

    And the Lord said unto him: “I sent you a Boy Scout, a Sheriff’s deputy and a helicopter . . . What the Hell were you waiting for?
