Quote# 36993

Okay so I am going to prom with my boyfriend. Well I was looking for a prom dress, and I couldn't find one under 100.00 dollars. I wasn't to happy about that fact. I didn't want to break 50.00 bucks. So in the car driving with my mom I were going to the next store I prayed. I just told the Lord that I really needed a lavender prom dress that was 50.00 dollars. So we walked into the store and there was a whole rack of dresses that were lavender (in my size) and 30.00 dollars!!!! I was extatic! It was awesome. Just some encouragement for those out there who think that God doesn't answer prayers!

I was amazed. I just couldn't believe it. What's more amazing is I was praying oh, about 3 days ago asking God to show me how prayer is manifested into my life. So when that happened I literally got on my knees and thanked God for what he given me. You should've seen the looks of the surrounding people. But I didn't care.

So God answers your prayer for a prom dress, but ignores the prayers of cancer patients? Nice.

Why was God the reason the store had that dress?
Why couldn't the store simply have the dress before you prayed?
Depending on the size of the store, couldn't it just have a wide selection?

Really, now.

Yes, because god can achieve the trivial, but when it comes to important things he's impotent!

$30 and lavender???

Honey, GAWD didn't answer your prayers - He was punishing you and everyone at the prom who had to gaze at that shmata!

A $30 prom dress. Which trailer park rec room is this prom being held in? Your God may be a redneck.
I shop at thrift stores, too, and yard sales. Sometimes I find just what I'm looking for, sometimes close is OK.
I ask and Athe provides.

Right creepy iffen ya asks me."

You really are a pathetic excuse for a human being. Grow up.

I'm glad I'm not your boyfriend - what are the chances he's getting any action after the prom with this repressed fundie?

Do yourself a favour mate and dump her for a woman who will do the nasty and enjoy it.

"princessofgod"

not proud, or puffed up, is she?

and $30 for a prom dress! she'll expect her date to spend more than that on flowers, let alone all the other stuff (maybe a limo?)

Okay so I am going to prom with my boyfriend. Well I was looking for a prom dress, and I couldn't find one under 100.00 dollars.

Then you're a very bad shopper.

I wasn't to happy about that fact. I didn't want to break 50.00 bucks. So in the car driving with my mom I were going to the next store I prayed. I just told the Lord that I really needed a lavender prom dress that was 50.00 dollars. So we walked into the store and there was a whole rack of dresses that were lavender (in my size) and 30.00 dollars!!!! I was extatic! It was awesome. Just some encouragement for those out there who think that God doesn't answer prayers!

It's nice to know God did that instead of helping the starving people in Africa.

I was amazed. I just couldn't believe it. What's more amazing is I was praying oh, about 3 days ago asking God to show me how prayer is manifested into my life. So when that happened I literally got on my knees and thanked God for what he given me. You should've seen the looks of the surrounding people. But I didn't care.

Did they think you were practicing getting on your knees for your boyfriend on prom night? OH, I'M BAD!

$30? Cheapass, I know someone who spent £500 (apx. $721) on a tux for prom.

But I didn't care.

You really don't, do you? All the evils in the world that you could pray for, and you couldn't see any further than saving yourself fifty bucks - yeah, I'm not surprised you're heedless of those around you.

So she's effectively using affirmation to get her dress...?
How does she know it's not Satan who granted her request, rather than God, in order to ensare her immortal soul...?

Yes, like God is as superficial as you are. Please.

Why this constant specifying of cents, when you don't use any cents? I read it as 10 000 dollars first, and thought "wow, that is expensive!".

$30 for a prom dress? I pay more than that for an everyday top. You really are a cheap date, aren't you?

Seeing a girl in her prom dress on her knees... yeah, I can honestly say i wasn't thinking about god either.

So, since this was obviously God answering your prayer, and not just coincidence, those dresses must not have been there before you prayed right? So they must have appeared by magic on the rails because you prayed, having been created by God with the explicit purpose of answering your prayer, surely? In which case why did you need to give the shop $30 for something they did not themselves pay for, did not own and had no rights to?

But then, why did an omniscient God create a rack of $30 prom dresses in your size when he would surely have known which one you would pick before hand. Why not just create the one you needed? And why weren't the shop staff surprised to see the dress when you bought it? Did God momentarily take away their free will and make them forget that there hadn't been any $30 prom dresses in stock just 5 minutes before?

There is literally no aspect of this story that is not chock full of moral fail, logic fail and theologic fail.

... holy crap, terrible sailor moon fanfic is REAL?

(basically, usagi finds christianity... and then prays for a low-cost dress. yeah..)

$30 new, for a lavender prom dress? I shudder to think what that looks like. Now, I have three times in recent weeks got a 'nudge' to go to a particular second-hand shop where I have scored two dress lengths of pure wool fabric and 5 yards of raw silk tweed from the scraps bin for no more than $5 a piece.
