    Yes Syamalaji, Faith has to be unconditional. Yet, at times it can be termed as blind faith. That is where we have to be cautious.

    Definetly yes. My favorite quote regarding prayers and believe in god is "Faith doesn't mean trusting God to stop the storm, but trusting him to strengthen us as we walk through the storm".
    Sometimes prayers and complete surrender ourselves to god do miracles.
    Sometimes I do requests to god and they are mostly wellbeing of my loved ones. I'm grateful to him if he sanctioned my request. I don't blame God if it doesn't happen. I hope I will reach the stage of not to ask anything from god.

    Good. It is worth noting. It is, however, different from blind faith. In my assessment, we pray because we need support from any quarter. Sometimes, that may come in the form of the totally unexpected quarter.

    Placebos are fake drugs which do not have any negative imp[act on the patient while at the same time, they are supposed to heal the patient through his/her faith in them. Their scientific veracity is as questionable as thatm of prayers.

    Sometimes prayers work, sometimes don’t - I don’t know the reason .. if anyone can explain why it happens so..

    sometimes life is very challenging

    No one knows. This is all about Faith.
    Dukh me sumarin, sab karen, sukh me sumare na koye,
    Jo sukh me sumiran karen to dukh kahe ko hoye.
    (All remember God when in trouble, but never when happy,
    Only if they remember Him when happy, there will be no troubles.)
