I want to publicly declare that I'm taking the test...

or backing out.

If you wish to test the existence and/or power of a God to whom you are accountable, you are hereby invited, but not advised, to do so by this...

PRAYER TEST

God to whom I am accountable, it is my opinion that you do not exist.  Therefore if you exist, I charge you to prove at least the probability of it to my satisfaction, by any means at your disposal.
Furthermore, even if you exist, it is my opinion that you do not have the power to correct errors, even when such correction is asked for.  Therefore, if you have such power, correct this error by any means at your disposal.
Furthermore, if you fail to do so, I will cite this prayer test as evidence of your non-existence or impotence, and tell anyone whom I choose of the results I have found.

Too ballsy?
Here's the same test without the testosterone...

Prayer Test Lite

God to whom I am accountable, it is my opinion that you do not exist.  Therefore if you exist, I respectfully request that you prove at least the probability of it to my satisfaction, by any means at your disposal.
However, even if you exist, it is still my opinion that you do not correct errors, even when correction is asked for.  If you do, I respectfully request that you correct this error by any means at your disposal.
If you choose not to respond, I can only assume that I'm right, and that this prayer test is evidence of your non-existence or unresponsiveness.  I consider it a moral duty to tell others of the results I have found.
Anyone having taken either test is welcome to note the date, inform other people of it, and use all elapsed time as evidence of the non-existence or impotence of a God to whom you are accountable.
If you experience an inordinate amount of adversity, you are advised to repent of having taken this test.  You are further advised to inform anyone you have told about it that you have since repented of it.

So far only one taker. Here is his email:
I, Sean Taylor, am hereby taking the Prayer Test on this 20th day of April 2014.
As of this date, Mr. Taylor has not backed out.
