I am a bit at a loss. In some posts some of the people here think that we cannot change anything with prayer. I get the feeling that they believe that all is preordained and that prayer will not help. Because it is writen - it will happen. Other posts seem to say that prayer is everything and that we can achieve anything with God's help when we pray to him. Somehow - it doesn't compute or jive for me. I would certainly like to reconcile this dichotomy. Maybe I lack "light" to discerne the two and how they can make sense to me. Any assistance would be appreciated.
