    DEBATE IS WELCOMED ON THE THEME "CAN WE PRAY FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD, IT INCLUDES PEOPLE IN RUSSIA AND THEIR PUTIN?"

    We all want the best for our world. The way to do it is to pray for the world.
    But that is psychologically stressful and exhausting. And there is the
    spiritual danger from satan; he will take revenge against you.
    Hence, I suggest the following prayer:

    ``All saints and holy angels and God, please, give help
    to 100 living and 100 dead people.''

    After you get used to daily praying like that, you could gradually increase the number.

    The world is the state of the forced compromise between the god of destruction and the Lord of Life. The prayer can shift the balance.

    Money cannot solve every issue. The US spends a 5 billion per day to win the war (WW3), but nothing has happened.

    Agree, money and earthly stuff belongs to the devil and he dispatches it according to his will: Luke 4:6
    Prayer on another side is godly and is about things that belong to God's will.

    Praying is OK for psychological reasons.

    Likely won't solve issues, but it helps people stay in the right frame of mind, and provides the illusion of helping in circumstances that are beyond one's control.

    Our reality is fairytale, because the electron is wave and particle. It is the reality with something else.

    I'm not afraid of (non-existent) Satan, but I don't pray often because I don't believe God intervenes in the material realm.

    In my opinion

    Seems like you have absolutely no XP with prayer directed toward God.

    It is true that God doesn't listen to prayer that is about material gain.

    It is also true that one should not be afraid of Satan.

    You're on good path indeed ;)

    Your right, you cannot have experience directed at God in light it's something that dosent exist in the tactile world, but you can have experience with your person that reflects said experience within, using a god as an avatar of the mind.

    How can you claim X is false if you have no XP (or don't know) of X?
    Also, how can you claim something doesn't exist without providing an argument of it's nonexistence?

    Simple.

    Your a living being, so X is the component of living thought. However reality is the other factor, and when calculated, provides the answer.

    This may prove something only if there is an argument that God is also not a living being, which you're unable to provide.

    'All saints and holy angels and God, please, give help to 100 living and 100 dead people.':
    Does that help in any way?

    I don't have to prove nor provide it. Don't need to, as things speak and provides for itself.

    God is only inside peoples minds. That's the factual reality of the matter.

    I will however say God is only living in context that the person who thought it up is living, but it will never go beyond that.

    There. It's adequately provided to you in a straightforward and factual manner.
