Quote for the day: Prayer matters

"And if things cannot be changed, why pray? We may gloomily feel this way, but the Bible does not teach that...It is Stoicism that demands a closed universe, not the Bible. Many people who emphasize acquiescence and resignation to the way things are as 'the will of God' are actually closer to Epictetus than to Christ." ~~ Richard J. Foster, The Celebration of Discipline
