Why Prayer Doesn’t Work (Part 2 of 2) — Gambling on Fate
Prayer has the same statistical effectiveness as gambling.
If you’re a believer from one of the major monotheistic religions, then the function of prayer is actually unnecessary (even if you are a devout believer). This is because if your religion is monotheistic, then chances are that you might also believe that your god is a supreme being, possessing all the power and knowledge in the universe. If so, then you don’t need to pray.
