Prayer as Cooperation

“Thus says the Lord God: ‘I will also let the house of Israel inquire of Me to do this for them…’ ” (Ezekiel 36:37)

Prayer is part of the system of cooperation between God and man which pervades nature and life. No crop waves over the autumn field, no loaf stands on our breakfast table, no metal performs its useful service, no jewel sparkles on the brow of beauty, no coal burns in part or furnace, which does not witness to this workmanship of God and man. So in the spiritual world there must be cooperation, though on the part of man it is often limited to prayers, which may seem faint and feeble, but which touch the secret springs of Deity; as the last pick of the miner may break open the fountain of oil or a cavern set with dazzling jewels.”
– F.B. Meyer
