Yes, I'm going to use a 7th Heaven reference for this— Say your dog broke its leg and it was too senile for the bone to heal, and it was desperately in pain every night and there was nothing you could do about it. Say you decided to pray to God to heal your dog of its broken leg. A few days later, you found your dog died peacefully in her sleep. Did God have a hand in this? Was it his free will all along for this to happen? Sure it was, as any Christian would argue with you that God has a free will for everything in existence, even the mundane facts about our lives. If God does exist, it is quite possible that may be true, but allow me to ask you just one thing: If God has absolute free will of everything in existence, even the mundane, what is the point in praying to him to change something? If he has free will, that would mean that praying in any manner is pointless, right? Please do correct me if I'm wrong about this.
