From Walter Wink:
In J. Beilby, P. Eddy, Understanding Spiritual Warfare, 64, 67.
There is no place for intercession with a God whose will is incapable of change. What Christians have too long worshiped is the God of Stoicism…
The fawning etiquette of unctuous prayer is utterly foreign to the Bible. Biblical prayer is impertinent, persistent, shameless, indecorous. It is more like haggling in an oriental bazaar than the polite monologues of the churches.
History belongs to the intercessors.
