Prayer & Backward Causation

I found this note about God answering prayer even before we ask in Jonathan Edwards, sermon, The Most High God, A Prayer Hearing God.

“He often manifests His readiness to hear prayer y giving an answer speedily, sometimes while they are yet speaking (Daniel 9:20-24), and sometimes before they pray(Isaiah 65:24).

Isaiah 64:24 – “Before they call, I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear.”
