Hi CandyI'm not a religious person (although my boyfriend is and we discuss it a lot) but I totally understand the desire to pray during the attacks.Having this disease is not a reason to lose faith, if you followed that logic then you should have lost faith already, look at all the terrible things that happen in the world. The universe is a strange place, we can't bend it in to shape, it is just what it is. Some of us are sick, and there's no justice in it and its not a punishment either. Perhaps God if he indeed exists chooses not to intervene for reasons we cannot understand. If God is (as the bible says) omnipotent and all powerful then the only conclusion is that he sometimes chooses not to intervene in situations of illness and manifestations of evil in general. You may never know the answer to that so why not keep faith if it gives you hope and comfort. Just don't expect it to make you better, because it might not. Again I am not a religious person but from my understanding God's purpose is to give us the hope and strength to endure life's struggles, not make them go away.
