I feel that god is real! I lost my tablet, that night I prayed god to give me a sign. That night I had a dream that it was in my basement under the couch. When I awoke I found it in that exact place. I really think that god is real.
You think that praying must've been the answer but you could've thought of it on your own. Think about it. You can pray for a purple sandwich for dinner tomorrow but it won't happen unless you make yourself a sandwich and dye the bread purple. What about those who have way more serious issues who's prayers never get answered? Like the ones who have their sons or daughters die in the ER from trauma. You can see how they'd be thankful that god answered their prayers if the kid had healed himself
In the Bible it says that God's awnser is not always yes. If you pray for something unreasonable it might not be a "Yes". Why would god want to give you a purple sandwich?! And maybe God's plan for the sick kid is for it to pass away. i feel that if you have a very reasonable request you have a 90% chance of it being a "Yes". This is somthing that is easy for me to say because I belive that God is my father and my leader. Maybe if you believe that to you might get a "Yes". Just try it! Good Luck
1) you don't have evidence that god exists in the first place
2) you said that god says yes and no to things that would seemingly contradict god's values. The answer can only be yes or no away, so why would praying prove that praying works when it's so contradictory?
