    If you begin a prayer with:

    Dear God,

    If you really exist and can hear me...



    Does that automatically trigger God's ignore feature since you're admitting that you're not truly faithful, or does he listen to your prayers anyway? :eusa_think:

    Statistically, praying and "wishing really, really hard" have exactly the same outcome.

    God doesn't hear.

    Rather, he responds to telepathy.

    Any prayer that we say or hymn that we sing is just for our enjoyment.

    No. God will listen if you are sincere. He knows that not everyone knows that He is there yet.
