I read this quote in slate, and it got me to thinking (but first, the quote):
And only last week the chiller from Wasilla spoke of "prayer warriors" in a radio interview with James Dobson of Focus on the Family, who said that he and his lovely wife, Shirley, had convened a prayer meeting to beseech that "God's perfect will be done on Nov. 4."
Here is what I am wondering. If one prays that "god's perfect will be done" at some point in the future, and doing so with the hope that that "perfect will" be the outcome that he hopes for, doesn't that mean one isn't praying that God's will be done, but that his will is God's will?
