Is prayer like throwing dice?

Dice photo by dearoot (flickr) My husband and I read…

We may throw the dice (also translated “We may cast the lots”) but the Lord determines how they fall. Proverbs 16:33

We talk of the mystery. Because sometimes (dare I say it?) prayer feels like throwing dice. The words are thrust from our lips and who knows what happens next.

Sometimes the answer is what we requested.

Sometimes it’s the opposite.

But there is One who knows. And what are results to Him? One word from His lips and the world begins or ends. He can scatter stars, fill oceans, bring life with just a breath. Granting what we ask is never a challenge for Him.

So prayer has to be about more than this.
