Could the outcome of all prayers simply be 'probability in action'?

As an example, if I pray for someone to be made well and strengthened then the next day they are feeling better, could this just be the probability that they get well that day? 

So basically, when we think our prayers are answered, could it simply be probability in action?

Are there answered prayers that could not be explained by probability?

I've been struggling with this recently.

Our God created us with consequences of life, which means when we get ill, if we wait we might get well without prayer. On the other hand never has a prayer for healing resulted in something coincidental. My daughter was diagnosed with a terminal kidney disease some years ago, but with much much prayer by hundreds of people, and especially with Gods' guidance, her doctors worked out a treatment that not only arrested the disease but cured her. That's the unfailability of prayer. No coincidence possible. The glory and the praise are all for Him and no other.
