This is a good example of how well "prayer" works.

^these people are stupid^

God gave us modern medicine,so we should use it.
Use your drive to the hospital to pray profusely, I say,and let God do the work through the doctors hands.

I mean there are times when God will heal without treatment, but that doesn't mean he doesn't want you to do what is best for your child by taking them to the hospital.

People aren't so bright sometimes.

praying does. my mum had started to shed her bitchy attitude a bit after my boyfriend brought me to church to pray. and if it doesnt work, at least it really does relieve me of my problems somehow.

There is an old country saying. Wish in one hand and s**t in the other, then see which one gets full first.

Praying and wishing are magical thinking.

Getting off your lazy privileged ass and getting what you want works better.

Wishing and praying work about as well as pulling out does. Believing something doesn't make it a fact.

I subscribe to the teachings of the Law of Attraction, which says our thoughts determine our reality. Therefore, prays and wishes can come true if you truly belief they can and let no doubt enter your heart. Not because some sky god makes them come true, but because you will them into being because you are the Creator.

Yes! Exactly what he said.Chance happens to everyone,but you mainly attract to yourself what you earnestly desire.

You are what you think.

So yes. But remember this is a dense reality. Synchronicities take time to manifest.

I really appreciate the point you are making, but God didn't give us modern medicine. Modern medicine was developed slowly, painfully, and with many mistakes and a lot of carnage. We are still learning from our mistakes, but those lessons are paid for by the health and lives of people.
The development of modern medicine can be compared to evolution by natural selection - the strategy that works gets to live.
Some proven highly successful strategies:
1) washing your hands with soap and water
2) vaccines (especially childhood vaccines)
3) antibiotics (properly used)
4) access to contraception and reproductive care for women

I cannot will my thoughts into reality, so this does not work.

You are doing it all the time and you don't even know it.
