            I pray everytime I play Mega Millions. Hoping and wishing that the numbers I choose are the winners as well as my quick picks. Praying is a wonderful thing, not only for winning the lottery but to wake up another day and being healthy and for the safety of those who are fighting for our freedom.

              Thanks guys for replying. I hope more will....like I said I am word of faith and my beliefs are a little different  than most. I have found that praying to win has actually brought me closer to God, i am learning what it truly means to live by faith. When i win it will be a great testamony of how God does answer prayers to those that seek Him and Love Him....

              I dont want to offend anyone that doesnt believe, i was just curious to see if there is anyone else reling on God for a win.

              if you are wondering how im growing in faith i suggest anyone read God's Plan for man by Dake

              Thanks!

                interesting...I like to talk to god to put me in situations that would allow me to win, because I know that If I prayed to win, there are millions of other people who pray for the same fate...there are many ways to ask for a winning number, not just the "let a number come to mind" type. I dunno, that method of prayer has worked for some people doh.

                It helps to believe that you've already won, makeing that manifestation come to fruitation much more quickly...

                  I do pray for a big jackpot win from time to time when the Powerball is on a special run or when the jackpot is a nice size.  I ask to be the sole winner.  I have yet to win but I believe that if it is the intent of god to make me blessed by winning the lottery.  It will happen and if it is not then I will spend the rest of my life chasing a jackpot that will never come to fruition.-weshar75

                    Some folks look upon prayer simply as a means of getting things for themselves (Winning the Lottery), but the biblical purpose of prayer is that one may get to know God Himself.

                        Raven62:

                        That was beautifully put.

                        Everyone needs to remember that reverence of God is the beginning of wisdom.

                        I do not think you have to pray to God for things.  After all, he is God.  He knows what you need before you pray.  He really just wants to hear the works honestly and from the heart.  I have found over the years that if I pray to God to protect me and my family and show me the way to personal improvement, it happens.  The only thing I really pray for is that God will provide what I need not what I want.  The want business is on my side of the prayer.  I will be provided for and if I want extras, well that one is on me. 

                        Anyway, that is why we humans are different and think different and hope and pray in different ways.

                          I Agree! 

                          I agree I wouldn't bother God with this trivial stuff, but I guess I kinda pray, I ask all those that have passed before me to help with those crazy numbers, especially my dad,  he played for years, and he won little, just like the rest of us.  But now, if it was possible, maybe, just maybe, he could push those little ping-pong balls just enough to give the family a jumbo hit.  He lived vibrantly, and was strong,  if anyone could do it, it would be my dad.  LOL jarasan

                            This definitley brings these to mind:

                             Lottery Player:

                            "Please let me hit Lord, give me a break" 

                            Lord:

                            "Give me a break! At least buy a ticket"

                            __________________________________

                             and:

                            The diffeence between praying in church and praying to hit the lottery?

                            When it's for the lottery you really mean it!
