Praying for something is fruitless

It’s impossible to speak for everyone, but let’s for a moment assume most prayer is directed toward a godlike figure. And let’s also assume that most prayer is said with the aim of ‘praying for’ something.

This something almost invariably concerns the future. It may be a wish, or a request, or a hope, or something of this nature.

Surely it doesn’t take much thought to realize that this kind of prayer is fruitless. If any group, or any individual, had their prayers requested then it would be immediately apparent to all. And it must be clear that the victims of disasters, and their bereaved families and friends, cannot all be non-praying people.

I cannot help but think the vast majority pray incorrectly.
