You are spot on Aimie. Well said.
It is a little arrogant to assume God needs to prove His existence to little ol' you, is it not? While it is true that God is all forgiving, there are limits to His patience. Prayers do make a difference, believe me.
That's kinda why I included the billions of other people who do not believe or believe something different.
I would think that stating god has limited patience as if you knew him would be quite arrogant. Doesn't fit with all loving/forgiving either.
Stargrl, When you pray over your dinner, do you thank "god" for giving you your daily bread? all the while 'god' is not giving millions of people enough to eat daily. Or do you think he just allows you to eat well because you worship him?
Either that, or god has a reason unknown to us. Which would render prayer useless in situations that ask for a change.
Full circle and all
I see you want to blame a God that you do not "believe" in for all of the World's problems. A VERY contradictory statement. People are losing their lives in third world countries because of the aid that is sent to help the starving are being stolen.
Can you point out where either of us blamed god specifically? Because I can point out the part where someone says prayer helps, which led to the example of daily tragedies that happen that prayer doesn't seem to affect at all.

Thanks. I agree it seems pointless, but for some reason I find myself doing once in a while even if it is senseless just in case the predestined idea is wrong also.
I agree if just asking for things was the only purpose of prayer then its kinda pointless. But if the purpose is to build a relationship, then it seems like a more logical thing to do.
