    Is it OK to pray for something like that?

    I mean technically you are praying for something good to happen to possibly a million other people (gamblers).

    Dude (or lady) is probably yelling at their screen "get back to betting through the !*&!*@*!$ links!"

    Why not pray

    1. When it comes to ball games Im pretty sure God has a voting system in place,
    like American Idol. Most prayers gets the money. Its the only fair thing to do.

    2. God is also all knowing BUT as Jim Carrey found out it can be
    hard to keep up with who wants what at any given time. It never hurts
    to ask early and often to improve your chances.

    I just deduced: Why does God allow bad horrible things to happen to good people? A god fearing family of 5 burns inside their car on their way home from church; Mother, father and a 5,4 and 3 year old.
    The simple answer is: There is no God. Think about it, it makes perfect sense. Marx was right, religion is the Opium of the people, made up by the owners of the means of production, to give the workers hope as they're exploited.

    There's no logic in your answer, no reasoning, deductions, points, just a declaration that is as unsupported as saying "There is no God" without the rest of your comments. How does "it make perfect sense"?

    Bad things happen to everyone alive who ever lived or ever will. So what? It is necessary. And relative to an eternity of bliss, just a drop in the ocean, a burp in the journey.
