If Election is true then why should we bother praying for someone to be saved? I have heard this question asked over and over. But my attempts to explain this have been feeble. Mike Ratliff over at Possessing the Treasure has a great article answering this question in detail.
But one thing I always think of is why did Jesus pray so much when He was on earth? After all, not only was He God in the flesh but everything He suffered was predestined, too.
