    The way I see it, victorl3ichiban, prayer is another form of the law of attraction.  You will for something to happen, and you ask for a higher power to ask you.  It helps you to visual and believe that you will win.  As for me, it has not worked, but it sure is comforting to believe in a higher power listening to my pitiful pleas for intervention.

    Best,

      I'm not a religious person, but if I was I would only really pray for those that are sick and hungry, and that my loved ones be kept out of harms way.  There are millions of people that are a lot less fortunate than us.  Why should God let us win over them?

        Yup..like when athelets in Football pray to win. 20,000 kids die everyday in 3rd world countries, but make sure the Steelers win.

          Yes I do believe in praying.  Acknowledging God sovereign control in all things  gives me strength...

          It is an awesome feeling to know hat this  INVINSIBLE ENERGY-INTELLIGENCE I can call on when I am afraid, when I am alone, when there is no one else to pour out all my inner most thoughts...My  troubles to and  He gives me  peace. ...

          Praying  for me is tapping into  this spiritual force that rules the universe!  Praying  takes away my anxiety and I can say "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life' (Psalm 23:6)

          Prayer gives me hope...Praying gives me inner peace...

          Let go of self Victor and let God....Tap into this  Force that  controls the universe and ask for  guidance how to pray...

          Praying  for me is just talking to God...I believe he hears and understands...sometimes His answers  are different than what I expect,,,but I trust  and believe He is in control of my life...

          Yes I do believe in prayer...

            Yes, but not praying to win the lottery. When we pray that way are praying that in essence everyone else doesn't win.

            As for the sports as joker17 mentioned, God doesn't care if a team wins or loses, except for Notre Dame!

            Scared

            Football player at confession: I can't help meself, Father. When I get on the field I turn savage and have to draw blood.

            Priest: It's just a game lad.

            Player: I know, but I just can't help it.

            Priest: Who is it you play for laddie?

            Player: Notre Dame!

            Priest: Oh well, boys will be boys!

            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.

              When I read this thread I immediately thought of Bruce Almighty when he answers everyone's prayers to win the lotto.

                  Those kids die of malnutrition, starvation and disease.

                  In this country we kill our kids on purpose - 1.37 million of em a year.

                  I wonder if one of em might have come up with a solution for world hunger if he or she had lived.

                    We've had a solution for world hunger for many years. It's the government heads that want to punish their enemies in times of war within factions, by using kids as a weapon. They won't allow food to reach it's destinations.

                     It's like when you hear about a crazy person who kills their own kids, just "in spite" to hurt the spouse.

                        I have to disagree. If we've had a solution for world hunger for many years, there would be no world hunger.

                        Putting food in planes, ships and trucks that can't get it there is not a solution. A solution solves something. Food rotting in transit or storage is not a solution. The solution will be multi-faceted and all-encompassing and successful.  Anything less is failure.

                        I still wonder if we killed the one who might have had a solution.

                          I do.

                          I pray for everything. If the answer is NO, I still thank Him. He knows what is best for me.

                            USA's population is 95% religious. Of course some of them will win after praying even if praying in reality doesn't help.

                            In reality something like 99.9999999% (or worse) doesn't win first prize even if they pray.

                              Do you believe in praying?

                              Yes I believe in praying especially in the bible verse matt 21:22 whatever ye ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

                              You need to believe in the spoken words that comes out of your mouth or the spoken words that is being thought in your head, without believing, the prayer would never be answered.

                              I pray daily and my prayers are always answered
