“Do you want to hear what I think prayer is all about? Prayer is about a positive mental attitude. Prayer keeps people focused on a positive outcome, but they have to work for success themselves.
“It’s ridiculous,” she continued, “for people to think that they can sit around, take no responsibility for the direction of their lives, never strive to find a resolution to their problems, then dump the onus on God. Why should God help out people who are reckless or lazy? If people care about their fate enough to pray about it, they ought to be working to do whatever it takes to achieve success.”
