Does anyone else pray for material things and their prayer answered. Not that desperate but wondering if it ever works for anyone.

Suspiciousness is one way of saying that one do not want to know the truth. It is the best way to keep the mind empty and the spirit restless.

    Gambling joke:

    The difference between praying in church and praying at the racetrack?

    At the reactrack you really mean it!

    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.

      People have prayed for thousands of years. Heck, people have done the rain dance to make it rain and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Does prayer work? Those that believe in such things think it does. I think prayer is just a way to get in contact with your inner being and the universe. If you are an amputee, you can pray till the cows come home for your limb(s) to grow back and it wouldn't happen. You can ask whichever God you believe in and it will never happen. So does prayer work? It depends what you're asking. Back to the original question: Does prayer work in the lottery? Who knows but I guess it can't hurt to try.

      Play to win!

            The only way to possibly get God to answer your prayer to pick the jackpot winning numbers would be to say a prayer like this...

             

            God you know there is no way that I could possibly pick the numbers with so many combination. Its nearly impossible for me to do that. So God if you want me to pick the winning numbers because you have some unknown purpose for me to have that much money you would have to have them pop into my head and I will listen and be a vessel and write them down and play whatever you say without question. Otherwise God there is no way I could possibly pick them out of thin air.

            And then say Thank you Lord and go play.

            And let it be at that.

            If you win it was God's will for you to win!

            And if you do win count it as a miracle because thats about what it is to pick all the winning numbers correct.

            And if not then you're back to the ol 9 to 5 grind.

            Are you able to accept that?

            You cant cheat fate! You cant make God give you the numbers but you can humble yourself and ask.

            If you win it was written in your destiny.

             

            God does know the next winning numbers in every lottery in the world yet it doesnt mean hes going to give them to you. But maybe?

            Its not about how good you think you are or how bad. Each day comes with its own instructions.

              Perhaps the creation of prosthetics can be attributed to someone who prayed?

                    Not really. It's because God couldn't regrow limbs so we had to do something and invented prosthetics. How about that? Prayer is an outlet for us. It gives people something to hope and believe in. Not that I'm against it. It is what it is.

                    Play to win!

                      So a bit like what the lottery is for some you're saying? Wink each to their own as they say.

                        James 4 NIV

                        You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
