I don't think so.<quoted text>
It just seems very disingenuous of you to say That 'your attitude is very powerful' and that' positive energy works' and then say prayer doesn't work..........
Your attitude IS very powerful, and positive energy DOES work.
But not in the sense that it can influence things outside your control.
For example, if a high jumper is ready to perform, and she looks at the bar 6' high, and takes a deep breath, and truly believes she can jump over the bar, she has a far better chance than if she says to herself that it's unlikely she can get over the barrier.
In that sense, in the sense that you have influence over your actions by your attitude and positive energy, of course!!
