Quote of the Day #24 - John Piper

A quote from John Piper on prayer:
When James 4:2 says, You do not have because you do not ask— that does not mean, you would have anyway even if you didn't ask because I got a plan. The verse doesn't mean the opposite of what it says! It says— you have not because you ask not. That means prayer causes things to happen that wouldn't happen if you didn't pray. This is why this a staggeringly glorious privilege! To be taken by the Sovereign God of the universe who runs all things according to His infinite wisdom and fold it into His causality— This is breathtaking.
~John Piper (quote taken from: Prayer Causes Things to Happen)
