The part that annoys me about you religious types is you treat science like the devil.

God personally answer my prayers??? probably NOT, I think he/she has way too much to do than bother with than little ole me, but God's agents or the universe in general has definitely answered my prayers. Things don't happen immediately, I think God and his minions works on a very different schedule, so I'll pray for something, think that my prayers went unanswered and then months and sometimes even years later, my prayers get fulfilled.. now that I think about it, the answer should be Yes because even if he/she didn't personally answer my prayers they gave the authorization to whatever forces did

Many make the mistake of thinking things like God cannot be tested and shown to exist, or not exist.
Once you define God, as the mainstream religions like Christianity have done, he is open to rational scientific investigation. You say prayer works, and the Bible is very clear that prayer works, to the effect that anything prayed for sincerely will be given. This is simply and demonstrably not so, and every believer knows it full well - yet they rationalize.
It is so easy to test prayer that scientists have actually done it, and those prayed for fare just as well, or badly, as those not prayed for. Prayer simply does not work, because no one is listening, at least no one willing to intervene with the unimportant lives of us insignificant humans.
You have a hate, should i say "a dislike" in humankind? I can pick that up by your signature
You are angry with our Creator 'cos of how humankind is treating the world, so whom can we blame? God? Even though i do not call our Creator by that name.
