I've heard this (sounds good to me!):

When we pray we are trying to talk to God.

When you have a gut hunch about something, that is God talking to you!

just  make  up  your  own  Bible -  somehow  God  will  understand  >............your  not  even  close  to  the  Truth ;

But  don't  try  to  put  Gods  word  to  shame  ,thats  also  of  the  Devil  and  unbelivers  like  yourself .....if  the  question  of  prayer  is  so  distastfull  to  you  and  you  refer it  to  (spamming  )  then  why  did  you  not  go to  another  post  why  are  you  asking  me  to  move  around  when  its  you  who  are  displeased with  the  content;

You  do  err  not  knowing  the  the  truth  of  Gods  Words.....

        It was a simple  and basic question that didn't call for every detail of anyone's religious beliefs, and it certainly wasn't a request for somebody to start preaching.

        I didn't pray and then buy a ticket, but I did talk to God this morning. He said he thinks you're running off at the mouth and wishes you'd stop, but he's got more important stuff to deal with and can't be bothered micro-managing the  petty stuff. He is sorry he wasn't paying more attention when you failed your junior high English classes, though.

            You're going a little overboard and being one self-righteous reprobate. 

            Try this:

            My people perish for lack of knowledge.

            You know what, I'm an admin on a Christian board, and you know what else - I'd never invite you there with your attitude.

            ARROGANCE IS NOT A CHRISTIAN VIRTUE. 

            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 think its just up to the person whether to pray or not for lottery or such. Its probably best to keep to oneself and not on forum. JUst my opinion. I don't think GOD plays the lottery; however. I think he's got more pressing issues.

                            this is act of war on our forums

                            by bored bible people noneless

                             

                            who have nonething better to do?

                            so here my 2 cents

                             

                            i first  seek to understand just what prayer is*

                            so.........

                             

                            Definition of prayer - Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary

                            1 a (1): an address (as a petition) to God or a god in word or thought <said a prayer for the success of the voyage> (2): a set order of words used in praying b: an earnest request or wish

                             

                            then looking in big bad evil  ass kicking  taking names book, the bible

                            i see this about prayer.

                            When thou prayest, enter into thy closet , and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly --- mat 6:6th

                            and

                            What things soever ya desire, when ya pray, believe that ya receive them, and ya shall have them---mark11:24 

                             

                            HOLD IT.

                            you want me to fool my self and if fooled, i can  have WHAT SO EVER , anything?!

                              this is act of war on our forums

                              by bored bible people noneless

                               

                              who have nonething better to do?

                              so here my 2 cents

                               

                              i first  seek to understand just what prayer is*

                              so.........

                               

                              Definition of prayer - Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary

                              1 a (1): an address (as a petition) to God or a god in word or thought <said a prayer for the success of the voyage> (2): a set order of words used in praying b: an earnest request or wish

                               

                              then looking in big bad evil  ass kicking  taking names book, the bible

                              i see this about prayer.

                              When thou prayest, enter into thy closet , and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly --- mat 6:6th

                              and

                              What things soever ya desire, when ya pray, believe that ya receive them, and ya shall have them---mark11:24 

                               

                              HOLD IT.

                              you want me to fool my self and if fooled, i can  have WHAT SO EVER , anything?!

                              i believe i won the lottery.

                              millions of prayers are daily unansweared because humankind prays to a God who does not exist 

                               

                              end of story,

                              i  did what he asked, and he failed the task he said he would do
