No god exists, that's why prayers fail.

I pray that if you are going to continue posting here you improve your grammar.

Etc.” is an abbreviation for the Latin phrase et cetera, meaning “and the rest.”

As for video format, I would prefer it if you removed the droning soundtrack.

Without us having to watch the video, could you describe in a sentence why prayer fails? Maybe it could hook us into watching the video.

Prayer fails because nobody's listening.

Prayer fails because you're only talking to yourself.

The clip art's an improvement over the sticky notes but watch for copyright.

Your monotone is a bit like being shot in the face with a rhino tranq dart.

Prayer doesn't work for the same reason that faith doesn't move mountains. It's all wishful thinking.

Prayers is like masturbation, feels good but doesn't do much for the person your thinking about.
"The self must have a healthy relationship to itself if it is going to relate well with others. An identity that is either missing or weak prohibits any kind of ethics. Only the force of an I authorizes the mobilization of morality." - Michel Onfray

Your opinions on why prayer fails prove your views are out of step with the cult you claim to be a member of.
You are no Christian.
This video is just as worthless as the others.
You sound like you're a drugged zombie.

Stop spamming this forum with your worthless shitty videos.
Have you no one else you can try this crap out on ?
You are an expert on nothing. You have nothing to offer here.
Get lost.

The fact is, the NT says "Ask ANYTHING in my name and it SHALL BE DONE".
John 14;13. It's simply false. The end.

When I was a little boy, I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised, the
Lord, in his wisdom, doesn't work that way. So I just stole one and asked him to forgive me.

OP: Why do you keep doing this? Some kind of sick self flagellation?

This is one of the bests explanation of why prayer is utter stupidity.  Let's put the old Milk Jug God to the test.   Wow, almost 5 million people have viewed this video.

The reason most prayers are unanswered is found in Isaiah 59:1,2,

Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save,
    or his ear dull, that it cannot hear;
but your iniquities have made a separation
    between you and your God,
and your sins have hidden his face from you
    so that he does not hear.

Our natural state is one of rebellion against God.  Naturally we shouldn't expect God to answer such a person's prayers.  Anyone who repents of his sin and puts his faith in Jesus Christ if forgiven and becomes a child of God.  A ruler of a nation won't be willing to grant the requests of those who are rebelling against him but he would be willing to listen to one of his children who asked for something.  It is no different with the ruler of the universes.

If you want God to do what you ask, you need to first do what he is asking you to do.

Come, everyone who thirsts,
    come to the waters;
and he who has no money,
    come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
    without money and without price.
Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread,
    and your labor for that which does not satisfy?
Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good,
    and delight yourselves in rich food.
Incline your ear, and come to me;
    hear, that your soul may live;
and I will make with you an everlasting covenant,
    my steadfast, sure love for David.
Isaiah 55:1-3 ESV
I do not suffer from insanity.  I enjoy every minute of it.

Prayer is as useful as a Christmas wish list to Santa.
