Sunday Quote: Prayer is a Request

"The essence of request, as distinct from compulsion, is that it may not be granted. And if an infinitely wise Being listens to the requests of finite and foolish creatures, of course He will sometimes grant and sometimes refuse them. Invariable 'success' in prayer would not prove the Christian doctrine at all. It would prove something much more like magic--a power in certain human beings to control, or compel, the course of nature." ~ C. S. Lewis, The World's Last Night, p. 4
