Holy Rebellion

A good word posted on Todd Pruitt’s site, quoting David Wells on prayer.

 

Prayer As Rebellion

 
“What is the nature of petitionary prayer? It is in essence rebellion – rebellion against the world in its fallenness, the absolute and undying refusal to accept as normal what is pervasively abnormal…Petitionary prayer only flourishes where there is a two-fold belief: first, that God’s name is hallowed too irregularly, His kingdom has come too little, and His will is done too infrequently; second, that God Himself can change this situation.”
