This is how many people view prayer, although they might not realize it. If they pray for something and fully expect an answer but it doesn't happen, they think...
- something is wrong with the puppet (God says no, or doesn't hear, or has a better plan);
- the strings the words, posture, timing); or
- the puppeteer (their lack of faith or selflessness or intention or clarity).
This is magical thinking.
