When the question of prayer comes up in this or the R&B section, there are a variety of answers about its power and what sort of prayer is answered. What I find interesting are the numerous interpretations of the words of Jesus, who is reported to have said in the Bible in several books and verses something like this from Mark 11:24: Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Some people believe that God has answered their prayers by healing cancer or awakening a loved on from a coma. On one of the pages of the link I provided, there's a story of a girl who was bitten by a rabid bat and contracted the deadly disease before a vaccine had been created. By God's hand, through the power of prayer, so the story goes, she was cured of what modern medicine was unable to fix.
The question is, then, if God is omnipotent--nothing is beyond his power and will--and if the prayer is strong enough for, example, him to remove a tumor or a deadly virus, then why won't he help a deserving amputee regenerate legs?Answer Question
