Counseling Advice Requested - Grace Community Church (Mertztown, Pennsylvania, USA)

Grace Community Church (Mertztown, Pennsylvania, USA) has always held to a Reformed understanding of God's sovereignty and human responsibility.

However, we have several members who are struggling with these concepts. Some are becoming more firmly Calvinistic. Others are questioning long-held beliefs in the compatibility of these two great truths. One lady has prayed for years for her mother-in-law. The mother-in-law died recently without making a profession of faith. Now this dear lady is wondering whether she should bother to pray since her prayers obviously don't make any difference to God's election.

If you have any compassionate wisdom to contribute, please contact me at grace.community@rcn.com.  WRF member, Dr. John LaShell.
