Welcome to the forum Ditto.

Could you explain a bit more what the nature of this prayer was?

My question is this. If God is all: powerful, knowing, and can be everywhere at the same time; why would it make sense that followers (who tend to do an inefficient/incomplete job) would be desirable as a vehicle to accomplish God's will?

Welcome to the forum fodder101.

The way it makes sense is that god is tasking these followers to do stuff for their edification.  What doesn't make sense to me is why anyone would misunderstand what god's will actually is.  I would expect those people to be receiving guidance from god, assuming the whole edification thing is correct.  I also see a difference between handing someone a book and teaching someone, so I don't think a human pointing and saying "look at that old-ass book" constitutes god providing guidance, or at least not providing any useful and meaningful guidance.

Do you talk to believers much, specifically about their beliefs?  Just a curiosity.
