    Yes, you can pray for anything, but praying does not mean you will receive it.

      So if you don't pray for anything, you can dismiss god as a fictional character ?. Good reasoning old timer.

    First you need to repent.

    Why should God answer any that does not want Him?

    Yes, but if you act like an idiot then God will treat you like an idiot, ignoring your prayer or giving you what you really need instead.

    Yes. Pray for anything you want, but know that God will answer your prayer with either a 'yes' or a 'no'.

    Yes, but it won't make any difference.

    Of course, but there are conditions: God is asking for faith and obedience...

    [1 John 3:21-22] Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God, and we will receive from Him whatever we ask, because we keep His commandments and do what is pleasing in His sight.

    [1 John 5:14-15] And this is the confidence that we have before Him: If we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we already possess what we have asked of Him.

    Yes. That doesn't mean you can get anything you want.

    Typical atheistic ignorance

    Again

    For those of us who actually BELONG TO CHRIST, which you obviously don’t, we pray for what GOD WANTS-NOT for what WE want!

      the question had nothing about Christianity about ANY concept of prayer ritual of many societies and cultures "CHRISTIANS" do not OWN the word PRAY Ambrose Bierice's definition of prayer is a man who thinks god arranged matter ALL WRONG and want to instruct it how to put it right
