"Bride has a cold...please pray for me!" - argh

I dont understand how one decides what deserves God's attention via prayer, but the hubris to ask God to pay attention to you while he apparently ignores, for example, those two Asian women recently discovered to have been chained up in a neighbor's basement for a year...or those kids getting diddled by priests...is really frustrating.

For me the worst ones are the really silly things. My mother and I were at Disney one year and when we got to the ride we were able to get in the front car. She says something about her prayer being answered. Usually I ignore the religious nonsense, but seriously. I had to point out really, so the starving and harmed children all over the world don't rate, but a ride at Disney does, not my type of god.

Let's face it. If he's not going to answer the prayers of thousands of children that are being continually raped, when is he going to answer?
