Prayer and the Sovereignty of God

So, let's just agree at the getgo that we shall not exhaust this study today. However, I found a great post over at the Pyromaniacs blog which I thought would be of help to the readers here. Here is the conclusion:
Here, in one final enumeration, is what I take from this:
God gives
believers' prayers a significant place in His plans.
We should never downplay
the importance of approaching God in prayer, Biblically
understood
.
It is the height of folly to let circumstance or human
reasoning discourage us from bringing our petitions to God. In other
words...
Let God say "No, I have a better plan," rather than, "Since you did
not ask (James
4
:2b)...."

God loves His children coming to Him in the intimacy of prayer. The Scriptures tell us, "The prayer of the upright is His delight."(Proverbs 15:8) Do you want to delight God? Then be upright in Christ, and seek Him in prayer. As soldiers of Christ, we should never face a day in battle until we have faced the Father in prayer. John Bunyan said, "Prayer is a shield to the soul, a delight to God, and a scourge to Satan." Someone once said that Satan trembles when he sees the feeblest Christian on his knees. He flees when we resist him if we are submitted to God. Martin Luther said, "I have so much to do (today) that I should spend the first three hours in prayer." Maybe you don't have the time to go and spend the first three hours of each day in prayer, but at least pray as you go.
