Prayer to the Uncontrolling God

Lead-in excerpt.
What does it mean to our prayer lives that God is uncontrolling? How does that differ from praying to a God of coercion? The implications are doubtless many. Among them are: we speak to a God who persuades us, we speak to a God we may persuade, we may know better what we may expect of our God, and we may know better how to watch for our God’s answers to prayer.


The rest of the link elaborates.

Author:
Rodney A. Ellis (Rod) is former a lot of things. Most recently he is a former mental health practitioner and soon to be former Associate Professor of Social Work at The University of Tennessee. He plans to move to Haiti following his retirement in December, 2016 to continue the work he and a small but amazing team have begun establishing Mindfulness programs in the schools and orphanages of that country. His major focus will be supporting the work of a school established by the American Haitian Foundation.


To those interested in the concept of the uncontrolling love of God, I recommend The Uncontrolling Love of God.
