If you are a christian and you believe in the power of prayer, PLEASE pray for me and my family.  There really isn't enough time to go into all of the horrible things that are happening right now.   :'(
I don't know what you have been through but I'll keep you in my prayer today.  Hope God will be your guide throughout this horrible time.

Matthew 18:20 For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.   Praying for you and your family, that you will have
peace through this trying time.

James 5:16  "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."



There's no valid evidence to support such a claim therefore, it is a false claim.
One can lead a horse to water however, if one holds the horse's head under, that horse will drown.

If you are a christian ...



I'm not.


and you believe in the power of prayer ...



I don't.

Horrible things happen to almost everyone; praying won't prevent or repair those those - you can only control your own reaction to such events.

Posts like this drive me nuts.  People who think that praying actually makes a difference are crazy. 


While they're certainly irrational, (demonstrating such by engaging in the irrational practice of 'prayer'), that alone probably doesn't make them "crazy".  More evidence to supportt such a diagnosis would be required to make it.
 
People pray because it makes them feel better instead of taking action, which could yield better results.



I agree however, in many instances, there isn't a viable action to be taken so, some unviable action, (like 'praying'), is resorted to instead.

tigerlilly01:  I'll be praying for you (and will have my prayer groups praying for you this week).  Two verses that I rely on when things aren't going very well:
  "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths".  Proverbs 3:5-6
    "But they that wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint".  Isaiah 40:31

Proverbs 3:5-6
Isaiah 40:31
                   


How can referencing a dubious source which has no evidence of veracity help even the 'faithful'?  Does it provide 'emotional support' in lieu of supernatural assistance?

 The Lord sure didn't bless you with an abundance of "tact", did He?  ::)

Since there is zero evidence of such a 'being' existing to "bless" anyone with anything, the question has no valid meaning.  Any tact I possess, I came about honestly.

the issue here is not a religious one.



It is when one reads the thread title and the numerous religious responses to it.


She/he was asking for help and I think that the part we should be focusing on not religion



She specifically asked for 'prayers' from xtians, (presumably disregarding any other assistance or, invocations by non-xtian belief systems).
