Mark Twain just shows off his brilliance and genius by posing us an interesting question. We pray for us to become better. For our friends and family to get better. The one person who desperately needs to improve is Satan, who has supposedly tortured all of us. Then why hasnt anyone prayed for Satan? After all it is in his nature to create havoc. Why hasnt anyone shown him compassion? . Maybe the world would have been a better place if we did.
