‘But who prays for Satan?’

“But who prays for Satan? Who, in eighteen centuries, has had the common humanity to pray for the one sinner that needed it most, our one fellow and brother who most needed a friend yet had not a single one, the one sinner among us all who had the highest and clearest right to every Christian’s daily and nightly prayers, for the plain and unassailable reason that his was the first and greatest need, he being among sinners the supremest?”

-Mark Twain

  1. Wow that’s funny – I was having this conversation with my Y9s the other day… We’ve been studying Blake’s The Lamb and The Tyger for IGCSE – and we were having discussions relative to the question the narrator asks in The Tyger – ‘How could He who made the Lamb, make thee?’

    Nice one Iz… xxx
