You can google the Man on a roof, story but I will try to make it short here.
A man is on his roof during a rising flood, a man with a row boat comes by and offer to help him, the man replies "No my God will save me"
The water is now at his knees, a man comes by in a motor boat, he too offers to help, again the man refuses, his God will save him.
The water is at his chest, a helicopter comes by, more help is offered he refuses again, cos he believes his God will save him.
Finally a wave sweeps him off and he dies. He goes to heaven and is angry at God, he asks him "Lord why did you not save me" ? God replies " What do you mean? I sent two boats and a helicopter" !!
So only an idiot thinks just prayer alone will help, you pray to God for the guidance and strength to help you, but it takes action on your part as well. I don't know anyone that does as you suggest.
prayer is generally used because it's not possible for a human to do , but is possible for God
Why not do both?
With such a narrowminded view, I could see that...lol.
Because I cannot work miracles myself in wishing for someone to regain their full health.
i tried to reinvent myself over and over again, but the horrible people from my past kept coming after me and ruining everything...so i gave up
Do both. You can really psych out your opponent by striking a pose and/or just shouting a request for divine strength.
Works for me
Are you crazy? That would require work!
I do what I can. Talking to myself in my head never helped anything.
im not doing either...
oh am i? ha ha ha well i aint prayed since i was a child nor am i going out trying to make things better i give up with all that nonsense.. im just living my life taking each day as it comes
