There is this link that I was reading a moment ago, and according to the article, "those who were prayed for were as likely to have a setback in hospital, be re-admitted, or die within six months as those not prayed for."

Here's the rest of it: http://news.bbc.co.u...lth/4681771.stm

Believe it or not, that's up to you. I am not sure if those patients and people who prayed are atheist or belongs to different religion.

But one thing is for sure, prayer makes you calm and relax no matter what the outcome is and what would be the consequences.

It is just amazing how God answers your prayers. I hope he does mine, too.

He does. Not just my prayers but other people's petitions too. But He answers in His own time. And the answer to our prayers may not be the one we're wishing for. God is good and He listens. as trivial our wishes may be or how unworthy we are of His love and attention

God answers my prayer with YES, NO and WAIT.

I always pray to Him evry single day and give thanks for all the blessings. When I want something I pray for it, if God wants it for me at that very moment He gives it to me right away. If some of my prayers are not answered then I know God doesn't want me to have it. Sometimes God says Wait / Stop to my prayers. I know that God is telling me "Not now my child". I always pray for an opportunity to come I prayed for it for as long as I can remember (since I was n high school, i think) nothing happened. Then last 2 yrs ago everthing fell into place, He gave it to me in His own time.

2. NO, i have something better in mind
3. WAIT... Now is not the best time.

thanks... a lot of my prayers were answered and some are left unanswered but there's no reason for me to be frustrated 'cause I know God knows what's best for me. Although physically we can't see God but God speaks to us through our hearts. We just have to listen to what our hearts desires. That's what God wants us to do.

I asked God to take away my habit.
God said, "No. It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up."

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, "No. His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary."

I asked God to grant me patience.
God said, "No. Patience is a byproduct of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is learned."

I asked God to give me happiness.
God said, "No. I give you blessings; Happiness is up to you."

I asked God to spare me pain.
God said, "No. Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me."

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said, "No. You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make you fruitful."

I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said, "No. I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things."

I ask God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
God said ... "Ah, finally you have the idea."

THURSDAY, July 14 (HealthDay News) -- Amid the debate over the value of prayer and so-called "noetic interventions" to help people heal, a new study finds that prayer and bedside therapy of music, imagery and touch don't improve the outcomes of patients undergoing heart procedures.

However, patients receiving music, imagery and touch (MIT) therapy did have a slightly lower mortality rate at six months.

The findings appear in the July 16 edition of The Lancet.

The study, called Monitoring and Actualization of Noetic Trainings (MANTRA) II, was led by Dr. Mitchell Krucoff of Duke University Medical Center. He and his colleagues randomly assigned 748 patients undergoing heart catheterization and percutaneous coronary intervention to receive prayer from offsite prayer groups or no prayer. There were Christian, Muslim, Jewish and Buddhist prayer groups.http://healthnews.altoonahospital.org/healthnews/healthday/050714HD526845.htm

Yes, pero dapat may gawa.

Nung 1st and 2nd year college ako, nagdadasal ako na sana di ako magkaroon ng bagsak sa subjects ko but im also studying really hard, the result is wala akong bagsak.
Nung 3rd at 4th year college ako, im studying hard pero di ako madalas magdasal,the result is may mga bagsak akong subjects.
Nung 5th year na ako(syempre graduation),aral at dasal ulit, the result is wala akong bagsak at grumadweyt ako.
After graduation, dasal uli ako na sana magkaroon ako ng magandang trabaho, so nagkaroon nga ako pero yung nakuha ko ay walang kwentang trabaho,nagresign agad ako, so balik tambay ako, dasal uli ako ng dasal na sana magkaroon ako ng magandang trabaho pero wala parin, one day naisipan kong magself-study sa bahay at magenrol ng short-term course,so everyday(whole day) tlagang nagseself-study ako para maging competitve pag nag-apply ako, so habang nagseself-study ako sa bahay e nag-aaply din ako,then after almost 3 months na nagseself study ako sa bahay God answered my prayers, sunod sunod ang mga job offers sakin,syempre pinili ko yung may pinakamataas ang sweldo.

Moral lesson:
Ayaw ni God na hingi ka lang ng hingi pero wala ka nmang ginagawa, kung may gusto ka maachieve kailangan you work hard for it. Gawin mo lahat ng magagawa mo para maachieve mo ang gusto mo,ayaw ni God ng papetiks petiks ka at nagaantay ng grasya. Ayaw ni God na umasa ka sa swerte, ibibigay ni God ang swerte sayo kung sa tingin ni God e deserving ka. Pero kung ginawa mo na lahat at wala parin,ang ibig sabihin ni God is "makuntento ka na kung anong meron ka". tama ba yun?hehe.

i believe that He answers prayers. But come to think of it, hindi lahat sinasagot. Honestly, i get frustrated kpag di ko nakukuha gusto ko. Like i prayed and prayed for better finances, pero walang improvement. God is soveriegn, He's not a vending machine na lagi mo makukuha gusto mo kapag may nilagay kang pera.

He lets others live, while some people die kahit grabe ang prayers. Sometimes, even if you work hard and pray hard for something good, di niya binibigay, for some unknown reason. This part is really difficult to accept.

Faith is not always the magic word. Abraham was a MAN OF FAITH, but he did not see the promises of God completely with in his lifetime.

Because we are only humans with limited knowledge, it's not an easy thing to accept why God sometimes doesn't grant your requests.

God answers prayers in due time.And in a reasonable situation.But somehow,whenever He doesnt answer anyone yet,i assumes that probably the devil is testing or teasing me just to regret Him....but it will never be. :hypocritesmiley: :hypocritesmiley:
