        Nope but I've known to cuss after seeing the results.

          Once in a while, with the realization that there are other prayers far, far more important to people.  

          Q. What' the difference between praying in church and praying at the race track (or casino or playing lotto, etc...).

          A. At the race track you really mean it.

           Scared

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          Lep

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            I checked yes, although it's not really prayer as much as "pleading."  I just lost a family member last week, so begging isn't the same as when you pray for someone.  I buy my tickets and then say "please, please..just a small win" (with a smile on my face) but I don't seriously think money is something people should pray over unless you're homeless or hungry.

              Usually I pray AFTER, well after a winning ticket!

              Some persons will believe that a person could make generic prayers at least three times a day. After awaken , during the day or night and before sleep ...

                  Yes I pray to win a lottery prize, and thankful when I do win. Even though it hasn't been the jackpot yet. I have bills to pay, so any little bit helps.

                   

                  I feel that praying to get money to survive is important, the same as praying for health for yourself or others, answers to I Agree!decisions that you have, etc...

                      I don't drag God, family or friends into my lottery playing.  Playing lotteries is gambling and for some an addiction, the kinds of vices you shouldn't want their help unless you're trying to quit.

                       * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                        I don't subscribe to organized religion, but Iam spiritual. I believe we are made of energy, and that it can't be destroyed, rather changed into another form.

                        Having said that, I believe that the universe couldn't give two shmidtz about anyone's lottery ambitions......lol

                        It's bad enough that the universe dosen't give two schmidtz about real world events, lends me to believe that it would be futile in trying to pray for a lottery win, much less real world events.

                        To each his or her own.

                         Let's get our priorities straight..!!

                          What's a shmidtz?  What?  I think I know.  I was getting a gallon of water from the machine at Publix and a sign read "please, no shmidtz."  So I think someone once tried to stick his shmidtz in the coin dispenser.
