Top 100 Atheist Challenges

So God hears the prayers of everyone, all the time, huh? "Dear God, I pray for a brand new car, pretty please?" Nope, no car. God does not exist.

The teaching of the Bible is clear that if a prayer is offered in accordance with God’s will, it will be answered (1 John 5:14).  However, it is also clear that not all prayers meet this standard.  The Apostle Paul, for example, prays three times in 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 for his thorn in the flesh to be removed.  But rather than grant his request, God replies that His grace is sufficient, and that His strength is made perfect in weakness.
