Yes it does Robert.Prayer does not change God, but it changes him who prays.
When you were an Atheist you believed all religion was based on fear.
But now that you again pray to a supposed god you hope in VAIN that YOU will go to heaven ... and if others are not centered in your Christian faith in Jesus ... that is just too bad for them ... RIGHT ROBERT the GREAT ... because as far as you are concerned they can spend eternity in hell???
Your religion is all about YOU!!!
You couldn't stand to be an Atheist for more than a brief interlude because being an Atheist you couldn't play your religious game of self-centered delusion.
