Conversation With An Atheist — Part 5

For our challenge this week, here’s a question sent in by Kyle:

God tells us to pray to Him by making requests. We can pray for things. We’re also to pray that His will be done. At the garden, Jesus made a request that God would let this cup pass over Him, but He ultimately prayed that the Father’s will be done. However, since God has already planned history from beginning to end, how does it make sense to pray for things, as if our prayers make a difference? If God already planned everything and His plans can’t be thwarted, then when it comes to request-type prayer, doesn’t it make more sense to simply pray “Thy will be done” and leave it at that?

What do you think? How do you resolve this question for yourself? Give us your ideas, and we’ll hear from Brett on Thursday.
