Okay, it isn't really important why He treats some people better than others. The important thing is that you believe that He does. This means that you also believe that it should be possible to prove his influence using patient statistics. All we need to do before we can start such a research, is define exactly when a person 'trusts God'. What does a person have to believe and think to be considered 'trusting God'.
