So what is the purpose of even praying, if God is going do do what he wants to

Some of these questions and reactions are very good. Take the missionaries who
are generally well protected but in the past year several have been killed
randomly through no fault of their own. Why, does the Lord allow this but in
another circumstance forstall the action.There is no rhyme or reason
for this but a lot is based on faith but the one thing that is missed is THY
WILL BE DONE. You can pray all you want for protection and if something
happens, it is always the will of the Father.Droughts, floods,
earthquakes whatever happen just as much to God fearing people as they do to
those who don't. Is he being selective or what? Again it isn't our will but
his that is done. Christ could have walked away from the cross but didn't
because he did the will of the Father. He was the only one begotten of the
Father in the flesh yet he was allowed to be crucified for us. Whether you
believe in him or not, it was for you and come judgement day, you will see why
HIS WILL BE DONE.
Some people like to rationalize that when God doesn't stop someone from killing
another its because he respects our agency and if he interfered it would nullify
that agency. Yet we will constantly read articles like this in which people
believe that God makes exceptions to that rule by intervening such as making a
gun malfunction while a would-be murderer tries to shoot someone. If these types
of "miracles" are permitted and do not nullify agency why doesn't God
save every person that is in danger or that is in need some special type of
help? Im just wondering if God is going to be so selective in how he
"interferes" why does he even do it at all? It just sounds like really
bad parenting to me. I mean if you have a kid thats about to touch a burning hot
stove, are you just going to stand there and watch, for his agency's sake?
Tell that to ANY amputee who has prayed fervently and has yet to receive a new
limb grow back.
Thank you for your story. I too have felt the arms of angels around me,
blessing me, guiding me and comforting me. Sometimes those comforts came in the
midst of severe trial, illness, loss and pain, but they came... and I am
Tell me that God protects me, when I get shoved into lockers for my sexual
preference. I'm a raging skeptic, yes, but show me proof.
