Why would God help a witch like Bunky win millions..That is the qusetion of the ages..or maybe it was the Devil who made Bunky a millionaire..Much love to you jrosina..

Because some people were born lucky I know people in Bunkys family. He may be a bit excentric but he is money wise or was money wise before he won the lottery. It remains to be seen what will become of his wealth.

    victorl3ichiban,

    It happens sometimes, and a few of us have "threads I wish I didn't start" files, or threads that just go down "rabbit trails". "If you go chasing rabbits...."

    One time I started a thread (I'm not even going to bring thre topic up so as not to hijack your thread) and in the OP of that thread I asked a question using the word "obligated". Big boo boo, that became the focus of the thread nd the discussion was tantamount to going frm New York to Boston by way of Phoenix.

    jrosina,

    Praying for some help with a Pick 3 or Pick 4, maybe, because you"re not really shutting other people out. I've read volumes about angels and prayer and most of the authors state praying to win a jackpot for yourseld is in essence praying that everyone else loses, and such prayers "do not compute" so to speak.

    Ut oh.

    We have a long time friend of my wife's that we play Mega Millions or Powerball with. When the jackpots build up he gets into a lather about it. It took a long time to convince him we should play the same numbers on separate tickets so if we did hit we'd avoid forming a trust, etc....

    Well, when the jackpot gets really pumped up my prayer is that someone, somewhere hits it so he'll calm down again. Be nice if it was us, but please let somebody hit it!

    Coin...Never looked at it that way before! You are right!! I do want others to win, all the time!! really win...even tiggs!..Lol....Lol..

    like  the BIg Mega Jackpots...Yes!!  may as many of the LPers  Hit it! I would do a back...well..maybe not a back flip...I can't do that anymore;  but I can still run around and jump and Scream with joy... Please GOD let one or several of the Lottery Post Family members  Hit!   hit Big!!Thumbs UpParty

    forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

    Now, does it count??

      four4me, adding my 0.1cent..ALMIGHTY GOD IS ALL GOD!!  HE can do what ever HE pleases, HE can use the Lottery to Bless you with your Finances.

      Why should we have to wait untill things are desperate before we start Praying for Financial help!!!    

      If I can Pray for help with Children, Husband, FAMILY and They are way more valuable that Money!!!!

      I can pray for help with money also!!! Just saying.. 

      Like i said people are going to pray for a lottery win no matter what their circumstances are. Be they poor or rich money makes things happen for lots of people but we all must consider the bigger picture.

       It is unknown before the draw if you are the winner, after the draw if you are a winner you will be judged in the end as to what you did with your new found wealth. I'm not talking pick 3-4 games I'm talking people who win millions. And even if people squander all their winnings they can still find gods grace and be seated in his kingdom.

      Money is of no part of God's being he could care less about money. Money is man's device.

      Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

        tiggs, only the calendar will tell who is who! you may not really know this person! I don't know the person, they might have done one great thing in the Eyes of GOD, not in ours!!  

        Then again the devil does put stumbling block in peoples lives...Maybe some become Millionaires, because it will ruin their life and pull them from GOD, and that is exactly what the devil wants, if your heart is not correct..your millions are not going to make it correct!  Who Knows?? ...only GOD knows!!

        forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

          In an effort to lighten things up a little, this was a favorite of Henny Youngman's that he liked to tell in Vegas.

          A guy who liked to play the ponies was at the track and got a tip on a horse named Roscoe. He put everything he had on him to win and prayed that Roscoe would in fact win.

          As the race started, he prayed, "Please Lord, this one horse, this one race, a little help. "

          And last out the gate, i'ts Roscoe.

          "Please Lord, a little help. I'll stop drinking, I promise". 

          Coming up from behind, it's Roscoe.

          "Please Lord, please, I'll quit smoking cigars, too."

          And pouring it on now, it's Roscoe.

          Coming into the stretch,  now in third it's Roscoe!

          Then Roscoe really opens up and takes the lead.

          The guy takes his flask out of his pcket, has a nip, lights a cigar, and sayd, "Thanks Lord, I can take it from here."

          He starts beating the rail in front of his seat with his racing form and yells, "Run Roscoe run, you @#$%**."

          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.

                              Jesus Christ is not God?...Do you mean was not God when he walked the earth? Or is not one with God now? Or both?
