I think you have to know how to make prayer work for you:<quoted text>
I've always been curious as to why christians don't rely solely on prayer, so I tried it for a time as an adult and figured it was because prayer doesn't work.
I knew that by the time I was six but decided to give it another go anyway. I did the same thing with eggplant and nope, still no god and still don't like eggplant. Kids are smart, that's why they need forceful indoctrination but that's a whole other subject.
Now I'm curious as to why christians refuse to admit that they don't rely solely on prayer (to their alleged god), because it doesn't work.
"When I was a little boy, I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realized, the Lord, in his wisdom, doesn't work that way. So I just stole one and asked Him to forgive me." - Emo Philips
