What do you pray for? Do you pray for specific outcomes/things, or do you pray for broader things like states of being (understanding, peace, love etc.) or both? Do you believe that God answers even the smallest of prayers? Do you believe that when an athlete, for example, crosses himself at the free throw line or at the plate - that God grants specific blessings for that kind of thing? Does God care whether one makes a free throw or not? Does God give us what we want or what we need?
Is it right to pray to win the lottery? Is it right to pray that God save a life? Is there any fundamental difference between praying for the two?
