Prayers are useless. Theists just use excuses to make it seem true.

Answer this: If god is everything, Then why can't he see things that need to be done before us? If he can see everything before us, Then everything that is requested would be done without a request, And that everything that is not worth a doing god would not answer. So god just does things without us, And he does not need prayers. Even if that, Prayers are just self-therapy. It does nothing as that god would do things before us as he knows humanity's future himself.

Prayers are useful. All he sees for the future is when you will die. There was this one time when the electric went out and i prayed for it to come back on and seconds later. It came back on.

1. For your situation, It depends on the electrician, Not god. Even if you don't pray, The light would come on. Prayers do nothing except for your waiting, Which is not even close to what prayers are supposed to do.

ok well right now its 2/18/2020. I went back in time to the day it happend and told myself not to pray because of the debate. And the electric was still down today because nobody prayed. But thankfully my time machine did not run on batterys so i traveled to electric going out again and told my self who told my further past self not to tell him about the debate. So, How do you explain that.

Can you explain it with logic? I hate when people say this stuff. Hell, What about people before earthquakes were declared actions of earth's tectonic plates and are natural? They said there is a God because he caused the earthquakes. Now there is no need for God to create an earthquake.

All electricity will be fixed by electricians. If God is really authentic then he would as well make electricity never down, And at least not let us complain about it. What about to introduce us to an even more efficient power source that will be harder to disrupt? When there is a reasonable prayer, There is no need for it because God can see absolutely everything and he can just do it before we even noticed. Either way, He would let us solve it alone instead of dependent on prayers.

yes I can. And god does not cause earth quakes. I also went back in time before the power outage happened and told every electric company to fire every electrician in the world and the electricity is still on. He does not know how to not make the electric go out. It just goes out. Sure its not always needed. But life is better with it. I and voters vote for me as anc2006 is lying and does not know how to win debates

How exactly is he supposed to time travel when there is no such possibility? It sounds really fake to me. That was no debate because first of all, He used personal experiences to debate which means that it is hard to rebut. Plus, His debate was unrealistic and unbelievable. He could not verify his debate with a video or anything. He just made up stuff on the way.

Pretty sure he's just a troll.

What is this opponent? He is just trying to look cool when it is already a fact that time travel is impossible for humanity yet. A person that has traveled from the future would not have a time machine at all.

Well, I'm not religious. And it's a bother for me to argue from a religious perspective. Still I hope you find a good Con for your debate.

what I am intended to say is that prayers NEVER work as intended as logic negate the possibility of doing so. If it is rational: it is done already. If it is not, It is never done. Either way even if you pray the god will not care.

"Prayers are just self-therapy". . That works. . . Some create a god= hope. Some do just hope. .

Your view of prayer, Seems to me, Limited.
Though my own is quite limited as well.
