Why Does "Works" Work Without Prayers, But Prayers Dont Work Without "Works"? by HardMirror(m): 9:43am On Aug 12, 2018
To pass exams you would be told not just to pray but study hard.

You have a medical situation, you are adviced to go to the hospital not just pray.

To be successful in business or career you dont just pray, you work.


Interestingly, those who are hard working, smart and focused would succeed even without praying, but someone who only prays but does not work would never succeed.


Why is this?

This whole issue about works and faith remains unresolved to the theists because :
1) They are not intelligent enough to spot cause and effect with one or more given factors to consider.
OR
2) They can but choose to live in denial and bias.

I agree with you. One has to be foolish to believe these things in the presence of evidence. Even without evidence, one should figure the ridiculous nature of religion. All it takes is to realise that things are not to be feared but understood.

Hard work pays but should be backed up with prayers. That you are succeeding because you don't believe in prayers doesn't mean it is hard work all the time. That atheist success in what they do doesn't mean Christians can't. As a Christian, you a shinning light. You have oil that attracts Satan to your domain hence it is advisable to pray. Unlike those who don't believe in God, you are special being . Lucifer doesn't have time for unbelievers since they are his captive.

12. sacrifices are useless and prayers are for the weak. But he who wants to be great will use his head to think deep, be his own god and do good to his fellow human beings.

lol! Special indeed. Same way suicide bombers think they are special. Lol. Useless people feeling they are special because they believe in some jargons. This are the flimsy excuses you people use to excuse the questions about your stvpidity which you cannot explain.

It is so funny how we all waste precious time goin to church and casting demon, swearing for enemies blablabla from one program or d oda, we have vigil for Friday's, weekday programs, Sunday service. We pray the whole week, while our mates re putin their tym to gud use and being productive.
Since I was born, it has been church church church n til date the country or economy is not getting better.
The irony is after praying n wasting our time, we ll now pray for visa to go other people's country that didn't waste too much time on church, they were rather productive.

Why is this?
it's because
Works=prayer
Which means, if you don't work then you have not prayed no matter how long you prayed and speak in tongues.
But if you work, even if you don't pray at all you will get answers to prayer instantly.

There is nothing like backing your work with prayer, just work you have prayed like that.
But again, working(praying) implies that you must know exactly what you are doing to achieve results. That means, you must learn first (by going to a good school).

In summary, there is no way you can separate work from prayer.

obviously, it is a rubbish, but as rubbish as that is, it is a universal law like whatever goes up must surely come down.
So, will advice to steak to that.

In bible days it wasn't like that because God have to intervene on issues that he shouldn't have, simply because men were ignorant.
But this days, God is not intervening on anything again, he expect us to work.

it's not enough to say so, prove it .

We are talking about reality here, not mere having faith.
Without work your faith is simply rubbish it's in the scripture
