Power of Prayer?

A Tunisian pilot who stopped in the middle of in-flight emergency to loudly pray, leading to the plane crashing in the ocean and killing 16 people, has just been convicted to ten years in jail.

You know, after the pilots from the Hudson's River landing were interviewed by the US networks, some people complained that they didn't give any credit to God, who obviously actually landed the plane. Which flight would you rather have been on?

I do consider myself an xtian, albeit an unorthodox one, and I've decided that praying for intervention instead of taking useful action isn't faith- it's trying to emotionally blackmail god into doing a flashy party trick on your behalf. Aargh.
