Excellent Alistair Begg sermon excerpt on prayer

taken word for word from Alistair's Nehemiah sermon series: Jan.27, 2010, Truth for Life itunes download

"...if prayer is not manipulating God to give us something He doesn't want to give, it is actually recognizing that God is very willing to give us stuff.  It is a means, said Luther, of obtaining blessings God is already willing to bestow, not of manipulating him to do things he doesn't really want to do. It is not overcoming God's reluctance, it is laying hold of God's willingness.  And Nehemiah understood that. He knew that nothing could happen unless God did it..."
