OK course they would, as long as you truely believe in whatever the ritual it is, you are passing on your anxiety, therefore you are more relaxed, and better able to perform & concentrate. Which should improve you chances of being successful or being aware of more opportunities to be successful.
Can you give any good examples where god has answered so ...[text shortened]... ayed sincerely to get a job, what percentage chance do you rate your likelyhood of getting one ?
There are so many examples of this I wouldn’t know where to begin. I’ll briefly relate a story that is on a video I have called “Angel Stories.”
Jone Wester Anderson author of “Where Angels Walk” lives in Connecticut. Usually her son Tim who lives in Indiana visits her and her husband for Christmas.
One Christmas the weather turned bad. She called her son the day before to tell him to stay home, but of coarse he laughed it off. Well, disaster struck. He broke down outside of Fort Wayne Indiana on a deserted access road. It was 32 below in the middle of the night, and he was going to freeze to death.
Jone, who was home worrying all this time, prayed deeply to God to send someone to help her son. She prayed at about 12:45 a.m.
Tim noticed a tow truck pull up behind him, and the driver hitched him up and towed him back to town. When he turned around to thank and pay the driver the truck was gone along with any tracks.
When he finally made it to Jones house, he related the story to her. The Tow truck showed up at 1:45 eastern time. This was the same time that Jone had prayed.
Jone called the local highway patrol but they had nobody outside of town on that night, nor had any of the tow truck companies. This was before cell phones, and it was too dangerous.
You haven’t stated what country you live in, but in America we have a TV program called “It’s a Miracle” that is basically all about true stories like this.
Edit :- Ask yourself this question. If you did nothing but prayed sincerely to get a job, what percentage chance do you rate your likelyhood of getting one ?
Good point. See my “Grace vs. Self-Effort” thread. Note that in the story there was nothing that Tim could have done (except listen to his mother 😉)
