    It is clear that he does not pray, who, far from uplifting himself to God, requires that God shall lower Himself to him, and who resorts to prayer not to stir the man in us to will what God wills, but only to persuade God to will what the man in us wills."-ST. THOMAS AQUINAS (12251274)

    It's the same ol' song and dance. This view gives us a God who truly, volitionally desires one thing yet does another -- and this supposedly for His own greater glory. God thus has one desire that overides another to determine His decree. So, we must conclude there is a volitional desire in God (the object of which is external to God) that comes from his nature (i.e. He can't help it), rather than God's love and desire being an act of His will.

    Scripture says God does what he desires.
