Prayer and Confirmation Bias

It is often accused by detractors that God doesn’t really answer prayer, but that Christians are guilty of confirmation bias. It’s the tendency to see what we want to see and expect to see, to say that certain circumstances are answers to prayer because I believe they are. When I expect to get an answer to prayer, I will find some event that fits my expectations, and then claim that it happened.

I claim this accusation is not only untrue but also impossible.
