So ask for not something that is selfish, but something good for others or forgiveness and it WILL be answered. And not something silly like appear next to me where I can see you even though I already believe you are here with me.
It comes back to reality vs. the book. Is there no incidence ever where an amputee ever was prayed for? Cancer sufferers seem to get prayers answered -- or so they or their loved ones assert -- so why not something unambiguous like an amputee? Do only amphibians get those prayers answered?
Like the passage I quoted says; Are Jesus' promises true or false? By looking at amputees we can see that they are false.
Making excuses for an entity that is supposedly capable and willing and promised to answer prayers, yet can not deliver on a self-less and earnest plea seems strange. If I were capable of making someone whole again at no cost to me, I would do it. Does that make me more moral than your deity or just more tangible?
