That’s all fine and good.
So why bother praying or worshiping such a being, even if you do believe it exists?
According to your own belief system, God’s will is always done regardless of whether you pray or not. Your prayers are meaningless because this master plan is going to tick right along regardless of your actions.
Of course, this has all sorts of other implications, such as the thousands of preventable deaths that occur every year, but that’s a whole other post.
- God doesn’t need you to inform him of what needs to be done
- No matter what you do, God’s will is done
- If you’re praying for something to occur, you’re showing a lack of confidence in God’s abilities
- God’s got it all covered because He knows every outcome and everything is according to His plan anyways
There’s really no need to pray, unless you’re praying for your own gratification. No need to beseech a heavenly father with the powers described above. No need to inundate Facebook and social media with prayer requests because none are needed.
You might as well sit back, relax and enjoy the extra time spent not praying doing something productive, such as spending it with your family or helping to make the world around you a better place.
Let God carry the burden. After all, it has the master plan.
