We could get even more in-depth and ask why a loving god allowed his creations to become amputees in the first place, and why he allows little children to be born without arms or legs. Of course, we know that things happen in life due to human error, errors of doctors, disease and oftentimes freaky things of nature. To believe that there is a loving god who has the power to prevent these things in the first place, but chooses to allow this kind of thing to happen anyway, is absurd.
Key Point from Why Won't God Heal AmputeesNo matter how many people pray, no matter how often they pray, no matter how sincere they are, no matter how much they believe, no matter how deserving the amputee, what we know is that prayers do not inspire God to regenerate amputated legs. This happens despite what Jesus promises us in Matthew 21:21, John 14:14, Mark 11:24, etc.

Why won't god heal amputees?
I know this has been talked about on numerous discussion boards already, but it is a question that is still a relevant one, and one that has been answered a million different ways according what each god believer chooses to believe. There are so many mind-boggling excuses given as to why their all-knowing, all powerful god has not performed this kind of miracle anywhere or at any time. I am not talking about how humans can help the amputee, like providing artificial limbs, providing robotic arms and legs, or if it were possible, attaching the limbs of donors. I am talking about making a brand new limb grow back, just as many claim to have regained eyesights and hearing, and whose cancer or other ailment has disappeared because of "divine intervention".
