Hello Invisible Disagreer... You're back!
At least say why you disagree...or your disagreement has no legs to stand on.
When in a competition, I ain't very Christian like...
God doesn't get into the competition games, no matter how hard you pray. lol
If they are Christians and decide to pray about it, they will probably ask the Lord to help them do their best and accept His will in the outcome. If they can't do that, they probably won't pray about the contest at all.
I dont think those are the things you're supposed to pray about.
Maybe though. I dont know.
When I pray before a competition, I ask for it to be a fair contest and that nobody gets injured.
Fun when you can pick a post pick like the above; hmm...which cupcakes look the best? Yum...
That question is an old one.
"Each looked for an easier triumph, and a result less fundamental and astounding. Both read the same Bible and pray to the same God, and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God's assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men's faces, but let us judge not, that we be not judged. The prayers of both could not be answered. That of neither has been answered fully. The Almighty has His own purposes."
God favors everyone. It's been turned into a cliche, but there's a reason for everything. Let's use this competition as an example. Maybe one participant will lose their house without the prize money. Maybe one participant needs to learn humility
2 Corinthians 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
The first thing an ambassador does is to learn the business, so he doesn't go around saying stupid things. Very few modern Christians do that.
Im not a Christian, but I dont think that god (if real) would take part in such minor affairs.
Why is God going to judge the competition? Just because you are Christian and enter a manmade contest doesnt automatically make God the judge of who wins and who doesnt, but He will be cheering for you both.
