Default Do prayers work?

Based on another thread, I am curious who has prayed for something they had no control over and it came to fruition?

Individual VS Group different?

What is the success rate?

Yes, prayer works.

But it doesn't work like Burger King. You don't get it your way.

Definitely!

For example, ! Last year I prayed for my sister to get better from her head cold and she did

Last week I prayed for rain and it did

I also prayed for the red sox to in the WS last year and they did!

So I am convinced, prayers work

I don't know about prayer, don't have any personal experiece with it.

But there was this girl who worked in one of our offices that most of the other women treated with kid gloves because she supposedly had "powers", as in being able to put the Hoo-Doo whammy on yo *** if it pleased her to do so. Some of these people were in genuine fear of this gal.


Maybe that was some form of anti- prayer........

In N Vietnam there are common beliefs in shaman (known as shamanism) who have the power to talk to the spirits and all the gods. People dont dare **** with the
shaman.

I hope prayers work my beautiful sister is at UCSF awaiting a lung transplant
If there are any extra prayers out there send them Denise's way.

I've never prayed b/c I'm not religious.

I have hoped for things to happen (or not happen) b/c I'm a typical human being. Sometimes I got what I hoped for, sometimes not. I'm guessing it's no more or less effective than prayer.

Prayer is good for the soul and it works in mysterious ways.
