Do your chances at winning the lottery, getting an A on an exam, becoming a superhero etc. increase with prayer? Or is it all just luck? Atheist would say that its simply luck/chance but most Christians would believe that its God's blessing, having nothing to do with luck. But what about crosses, medallions of saints, or any other type of religious symbol, couldn't these be considered "lucky charms" such as a rabbits foot?
So are all events determined by random chance? Or if God really did set this world in motion does he predetermine what we do not leaving any room for chance?
