The grandfather's view of God in "Cold Sassy Tree" is that God does not interfere in the lives of humans to prevent or cause death.  He believes that prayer does not result in God helping humans with their decisions or causes, but if you ask for strength, through prayer, God will grant it.

The grandfather believes that their are rules in place that guide the lives of humans and that God does not change them.
