The powerlessness of prayer

All my life I have listened to delusional Bible thumpers mouth off about the "power of prayer." I could give a million examples of prayers' uselessness, but here is a new example that prayer, like all things religious, is a joke.

It has been reported that the people on board the Malaysian plane that went down in the Ukraine were alive during the plane's 12-minute spiral toward the ground. No doubt the believers were praying, right? How did that praying from almost 300 people on board work out?

Let's see, the plane crashed and all on board died, so tell me once again about the power of prayer.
