NT-promises about prayer
1 John : 5:14-15- strong prayer promise
Theological distinction between will of God in two senses, revealed will of God (EX. don't steal,, sister conflict-He wants us to forgive each other) (Involves free choices of other people sisters are moral agents and responsible to forgive each other) and hidden will of God.
Theories of free will
Non-determinism (libertarian):I pray that sisters will forgive each other, I will override their free will. God can try to influence sisters but will not want to override moral responsibility (free will). I can be confident that God will give His best shot.
Soft determinism: a free choice is acting on what matters most to you. Pray to God that He changes their hearts and they forgive each other.
libertarian: weakens prayer and doesn't fulfill prayer promises/ doesn't seem consistent
soft determinism: God (puppet master)-Isn't He making a choice? Have they (us) become puppets?
