Prayer and God's will

“Prayer is not a convenient device or imposing our will upon God, or for bending His will to ours, but the prescribed way of subordinating our will to His. It is by prayer that we seek God’s will, embrace it and align ourselves with it. Every true prayer is a variation on the theme, ‘Your will be done.’ Our Master taught us to say this in the pattern prayer He gave us and added the supreme example of it in Gethsemane”
John Stott, “Letters of John.”
